Season: autumn

The sun was shining for this re-visit and the beach still attracted visitors, despite it being the end of the school holidays.  Fine views across a silver sea towards Exmouth featured in the east, while ancient desert sand cliffs framed the main railway line towards Teignmouth to the west.  I enjoyed a last view of the first four groynes on the beach, as these were due to be removed under the Beach Management Scheme.

Dawlish Warren beach is almost a mile long, sitting opposite Exmouth, on the other side of the Exe Estuary.  Behind the attractive, sandy beach is Dawlish Warren National Nature Reserve, a wildlife sanctuary by the sea that can boast over 600 species of flowering plants in its grassland.  Rangers supervise pond-dipping and tours for visitors to the reserve.  Nearby Dawlish offers further coastal views and excellent shopping for the visitor.
