Scenic coasts, secret beaches and hidden coves make Salcombe a paradise (and a playground) for would-be adventurers. Whether by foot, boat or kayak, there are bountiful opportunities for an action-packed holiday from the very moment you arrive in Salcombe.

Salcombe provides the perfect backdrop for seafaring exploration, and to really get the most out of your stay, discovering our picturesque coast on a traditional Salcombe Yawl is an experience you can’t miss out on! If you have booked one of Salcombe Finests VIP Packages VIP packages, our dedicated team can organise a charter from our extensive fleet, giving you more time to plan your next adventure. However, we can’t promise taming these waters will be easy!

If you are looking to really get your blood pumping and the adrenaline racing, look no further than power-boating. Salcombe is truly a hotspot for power-boating, with visitors from around the world convening to take advantage of the dramatic coastlines and crystal clear waters. If you’ve never been power-boating before, your visit to Salcombe is the perfect place to start. Freedom, leisure and luxury combined, this is a chance to blow off some steam, ride the waves and enjoy Salcombe by sea. For the full 007 experience, charter Level 8 – our Italian 80ft powerboat really packs a punch and is perfect for watersports.

Want to explore at a more leisurely pace? We’ve got you covered. Sea Kayaking the coast is the perfect way to explore Salcombe’s geographical landmarks and requires no previous experience – making it the seamless option for adventurers big and small. Visiting in a group or with your family? Book introductory courses, guided tours, and tandem kayaks from our friends at Sea Kayak Salcombe in South Sands.

For breath taking views, take a trip down the South West Coast Path. Traverse through woodland and seafront to discover Salcombe’s rich cultural heritage; ranging from Bronze and Iron Age settlements to forts from the Second World War. Zigzag Salcombe’s soaring red cliffs and soak up the stunning visuals that this hiking trail has to offer. The South West Coast Path is dog-friendly and fun for all the family, with plenty of sandy spots (and pubs!) along the trail.
