Welcome to Explore the Coast; a new map-based site from the North Devon Coast Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whether you are a local, a day tripper or simply enjoying a North Devon holiday, this website will help you and your family explore the fascinating and beautiful coastline from Combe Martin on the edge of the Exmoor National Park right through to Welcombe on the Cornish border.
For those in a hurry, our walking and cycling page conveniently combines many favourite routes, our interpretation guides give themed summaries of the area and our family friendly activities page might also help inspire some fresh ideas of things to do.
Or why not dig a little deeper and use our interactive map to search for things of interest to you... from fantastic Devon beaches, surfing North Devon waves, distance or short walks along the South West Coast Path, family picnics and wildlife discovery... You'll be amazed how much you can do without setting foot near your car! Discover new places to go, find out about the maritime and farming heritage that has shaped our culture and scenery, or learn how our landscape has inspired writers and artists.
