Visit Combe Martin

Combe Martin Beach is in the middle of the Exmoor National Park and North Devon’s Area of Outstanding Beauty. It is a great spot for a weekend away, whether you are walking the South West Coastal Path, or just want to relax on the sand. Combe Martin Beach is perfect for families, it is safe for swimming and when the tide goes out there are large rock pools to explore. After a day by the sea there are plenty of restaurants and shops for visitors to enjoy.

This beach is Dog friendly between 1 October and 30 April.
