This place rocks
Rock pools don't close for the winter months and are full of wildlife all year round. Download the Devon Wildlife's marine spotters guide (pdf) to see what you can discover beneath the surface of the water.
You can check the tide times here to make sure you come at the best time for rock pooling, and visiting during the autumn and winter months means you won't be vying for space on the beach.
Something for everyone

Dave runs Singing Paddles, a licensed canoe operator on the Salcombe and Kingsbridge estuary. He is out on the water with tours all year with his Canadian canoes.
Dave works in partnership with the National Trust and with a degree in botany and a lifelong interest in ecology he talks knowledgeably about the sights and sounds of the Salcombe estuary and how we care for over 500 acres around its shores.
This is a year of celebration - we are taking part in South West Coastal Festival to mark a 50 year milestone in the conservation of the coast.
Over 300 miles of the South West coast is protected by the National Trust, largely thanks to the Neptune campaign - set up 50 years ago.
