Combe Martin beach, set into the North Devon coast is an an attractive location just below the village itself. It is flanked by some of the highest sea cliffs in England, which go towards earning its claim as an AONB - Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The beach is a mixture of mostly shingle and pebbles, but it becomes more sandy as you approach the waterline. It's a great location for swimming, sheltered and providing protection from particularly strong currents or waves.
However, do note there is no lifeguard service so care should be taken!
Combe Martin is also a great beach for children, there are more than a few rock pools to either side of the beach that they will love exploring.
The beach is a good walk from the centre of Combe Martin but there is a large car park above the beach, which has a public toilet and stairs allowing direct access. There is another small car park by the adjacent Newberry Beach. Around the beach there are various shops and cafes.
