Welcome to Explore the Coast
Explore the Coast; a map-based site from the North Devon Coast Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Locals, day trippers or holiday makers - there's so much to explore here on our magnificent coast! This website will help you and your family explore the fascinating and beautiful coastline from Combe Martin on the edge of the Exmoor National Park right through to Welcombe on the Cornish border. Whatever your interest - there's lots to do, for free.
There's information for all sorts of family days out, from great coastal walks, points of interest, activities, geology, history and lots more - not least an opportunity to check weather and tides.... an essential on any day out near the coast.
To make it easier and user friendly, we have an interactive map where you can pinpoint the areas you'd like to explore and the interests you have. Everything from great places to picnic, spot wildlife or get a feel for the local history and culture. It's an area which has inspired writers, poets and painters and an amazing part of the world to just relax, enjoy and unwind with breathtaking scenery all around.
So, time to get out there....... whatever your interest... surfing? walking? golfing? picnic-ing? siteseeing? nature and wildlife spotting? local history? geology? Don't forget, there's also info on public transport, refreshments and lots of special points of interest to look out for.
