Bathed in an almost Mediterranean climate the South Hams most Southerly town is located in an area of breathtaking, unspoilt natural beauty. With its picturesque harbour, dramatic coastline and wonderful surrounding countryside it is no wonder that Salcombe has been a popular holiday destination as long as can be remembered.

A Mecca for wildlife enthusiasts, birds flock in their thousands to the harbour. The estuary is a haven for a wide variety of fish, including many very rare species, and is frequently visited by basking sharks and dolphins. Like birds, folk with a passion for the life aquatic also flock here in their thousands and who could blame them? The opportunities for sailing, boating fishing and water-sports are virtually matchless anywhere else in the UK. Salcombe also boasts several excellent sailing schools offering tuition to the very highest standard.

The little town itself is vibrant labyrinth of narrow streets and steep alleyways, its charm equalled only by the variety of shops, fine restaurants and cafes from which to choose. You can stroll at your leisure whilst enjoying delicious, locally produced ice cream or chocolate, visit Island Street’s famous boatyards or catch a ferry to nearby East Portlemouth and North and South Sands for a day on the beach. In short Salcombe has everything you would expect from a British holiday by the sea – and maybe just a little bit more!

My name is Kess from and I come from Stockholm Sweden. This summer, I plane to visit you Harbour around July 4-5. My boat has a draft of 2.5 meters. My question is where in the marina might I add.

Best regards

We met Nick from Cream Marine engineers and storage Salcombe at the London Boat Show 2015 on the Selva Marine stand. His personal yet professional approach made us feel immediately at ease. After a quick discussion, Nick had guided us to a product which suited us perfectly and surprisingly didn't cost the earth. Nick is a fair and well educated engineer who only wants people to enjoy the water. We will have to make the effort to come to Salcombe to see him again and enjoy a day on the water he feels so passionate about.

We are debating buying a Nordkapp, so we drove down from Berkshire to Will's Marine, very positive outcome and was well worth it.

Its us again...Have you ever thought about offering a discount service with the businesses that are on your guide?? Last time we were here we used your harbour guide and pretty much most of the businesses on it, from Hotels to taxis etc. It would be even more of an incentive if there was some kind of discount however small it might be.
Just a thought.

Oh nearly forgot, hope the Crabshell Inn is still there!!I see their banner is still on your site. If the sun shines we will certainly be spending some time there.

Just reminiscing about our last trip to Salcombe, as we are going again this year. We had the most wonderful stay at The Globe Inn and will be returning. We are looking forward to sampling the restaurants and pubs that are featured on your Salcombe pages, and of course we will be hiring a boat. Cant wait!!!
