The National Trust owns over 40 miles of stunning coastline in the South Hams area. From small wild places where you can get really close to nature to popular beaches with great cafes and watersports.
For those that enjoy a walk, the Salcombe area has lots of beautiful trails inland and along the South West Coast Path. Download walks from our www.nationaltrust.org.uk/salcombe-to-hope-cove and www.nationaltrust.org.uk/east-portlemouth-to-start-point.

Visit our beautiful sandy beaches at South Milton Sands and Mill Bay, East Portlemouth, both ideal for families with safe bathing and great eateries nearby. We work with Singing Paddles to offer canoeing experiences on the Kingsbridge and Salcombe estuary. For the more adventurous you can have a go at kayaking, stand up paddle boarding or windsurfing on the beach at South Milton with Surfin' Sam. The Beachhouse café is a popular hang out for early risers, fish lovers and sundowners.
