Welcombe Mouth Beach

Welcombe Mouth Beach

Welcombe Mouth is a very secluded and quiet beach just over the border in Devon. This hidden gems is part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is surrounded by steep, rocky cliffs and costal slopes. When the tide is low it reveals a small beach of golden sand with many rock pools to be found along the fore shore. Along with some interesting geology there is a picturesque waterfall.
Accessed via a rough and narrow road it isn't the easiest beach to find and tends to be mostly popular with locals, surfers and ramblers. It is a fantastic location for coastal walking and exploring the wildlife, as the slopes are filled with plant and animal life, and the steep cliffs offer breathtaking views out over the inlet.
