Excellent Access for Everyone

Bigbury on Sea beach has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag in recognition of the beach's excellent standards, particularly its efforts to make the beach accessible to everyone. In addition to good disabled access, Bigbury on Sea beach also provides Beach Wheelchairs for those with mobility requirements. It is one of the South Coast's best locations for windsurfing, canoeing and dramatic coastal walks and is, undoubtedly, one of the most stunning beaches in the South Hams.


Burgh Island

Bigbury’s most famous landmark is Burgh Island, which overlooks the beach itself. The island is accessible at low tide, when the waters reveal a causeway that links it to the beach. However, when the tide is in you can still reach the island by hitching a ride on the popular and unique ‘sea tractor’ .
