Framed by Bigbury Bay, between the headlands of Stoke Point and Bolt Tail, Bigbury-on-Sea is one of the iconic Devon beaches. With Burgh Island just offshore and accessible at all tide times, either via a causeway or by the sea tractor, this has been the location for numerous films and television episodes.  The island has a pub and a hotel and is a pleasant addition to any visit here.  The beach is on the South Devon Coastal Path and is also part of the South West Coast Path.  There are all the ingredients you’ll need here for a fine day out.
