Exmouth is a Gateway Town to the Jurassic Coast
Exmouth, at the estuary's mouth, marks the World Heritage Coastline's western gateway and despite being one of England's oldest resorts, remains untouched by commercialism.
The beach has two-miles of golden sand and many fascinating rock pools, making it a paradise for children and adults alike. The promenade has old favourites such as crazy golf, swing boats and sometimes even a Punch and Judy show.
For the more energetic, the coastal playground with a boating lake, swimming, sailing, water-skiing, tennis, bowls, cricket, pony riding, river cruises and fishing trips, should provide ample entertainment.
The town itself is rich with elegant Georgian architecture and many friendly and traditional shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes.
The bustling Exmouth summer festival takes place in June and includes concerts, picnics, parades and an amazing sand sculpture competition. The illuminated carnival in October is spectacular and watched by thousands every year.
The nearby Exe Estuary is one of the most beautiful in Britain and a haven for birdlife, particularly sandpipers and the rare avocet. Amble along the banks for glimpses of castles, charming riverside villages and breathtaking sunsets.
