South Devon Beaches - a swim, walk & history guide by Simon Tozer

This is my personal guide to ten beaches on the South Devon Coastline between Maidencombe and Dawlish Warren. This guides gives you more information on the area, the history, the legends, the swims, the walks and even a poem for each.

  • Swim – Where are the best places to swim? What are the currents like? How busy does it get? Is the water likely to be polluted?
  • Walk – how do I get there? Is there a good walk I can enjoy and what are the details?
  • History – Read about the Devil’s Footprints on the beaches, a 14th Century monk who became Britain’s first serial killer, 18th Century smugglers and brigands and the arrival of the railways.

 

Each location includes

  • fabulous photos
  • a guide to swimming there
  • directions and a suggested walk
  • a local or suitable poem
  • the history of the location and some local legends
  • the author’s own experiences there
  • some other great tips

This book is a must for anyone who lives, visits, swims. walks or just loves the South Devon Coastline
