Beautiful estuary and seaside location
Beautiful village strung out along the south bank of the Teign Estuary which flows into Babbacombe Bay off the Devon coast. Given its location, Shaldon's geared towards leisure and tourism. There are plenty of pubs and places to eat and drink behind Shaldon Beach with top views across the water to Teignmouth.

For its views, we'd recommend walking to the top of The Ness which is the high cliff to the east of the village. Follow the path south and you'll come to Shaldon Zoo. It's a superb little zoo and well worth a visit. From there, walk through the tunnel to explore Ness Cove Beach which stretches out beneath high red cliffs.

In Teignmouth, Teignmouth Pier is fun. The town's beach is always popular. We'd also recommend strolling the promenade with its super views of coast and sea. Equally as impressive are the views east of the boats on the Teign Estuary. Inland, to the north west, visit Haldon Forest Park.

Long distance walking
If you're into walking, Shaldon's a great base from which to start and return. The Templer Way heads to Dartmoor National Park. North of Shaldon, via a water taxi, the South West Coast Path heads towards Dawlish Warren Beach and the Exe Estuary. South of Shaldon, the Path climbs and falls as it winds its way down the coast towards Babbacombe and The English Riviera. There are some superb little beaches on this part of the coast. Try Watcombe Beach and Maidencombe Beach.

West of Shaldon, walk to The Coombe Cellars and its superbly positioned pub.
