The local beaches form a golden arc around the bay with shingle coves scattered nearby. The town provides a wonderful quality of life for its residents with excellent shopping, waterside restaurants, a theatre and bars. Internationally renowned water sports are held in the sheltered deep water bay, with the marina providing excellent mooring facilities for luxury yachts and motor cruisers. The area provides many scenic walks along South Devon's coastal footpaths, with local golf courses also nearby. A short distance to the north lies the magnificent Dartmoor National Park.
