Watersports at Wembury

Kayakers at Wembury, Devon

As well as walking and discovering creatures on the beach, there's lots to see and do in the water, and nearby too.


Wembury Beach is a popular spot for surfing and kayaking. With a swell of up to ten feet, Wembury is fantastic for surfers of all abilities.
This part of the coast and the River Yealm is fantastic to explore by kayak. The Great Mewstone is a nature reserve and home to a wide variety of seabirds. Landing is not permitted for this reason.


Enjoy a relaxing trip down the sheltered River Yealm past the quaint villages of Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers towards the sea. From Wembury Bay you can sail around the magnificent Mewstone and Wembury Point towards Plymouth Sound.
Members of Wembury Sailing Club may use the boat park next to the beach. See: wemburysailingclub.org.uk
