Salcombe Attractions

Salcombe has many attractions to occupy your time during your visit. Some that may even capture your imagination and leave you breathless, and some that might just get you that adrenaline rush you crave.

Overbecks Museum And Garden

Welcome to the seaside home of inventor and scientist Otto Overbeck. His gardens and house are perched high on the cliffs above Salcombe, with glorious views over the estuary and coast. Walking through the garden is like taking a trip around the world. With palm trees, banana plants, citrus and olive trees, you could easily forget for a moment where you are and expect to see a parrot flying up above.

Salcombe To Bolt Head Walk

A 3 mile moderate walk along part of the South West Coast Path National Trail passing through an enchanted landscape of rocky spires and jumbled pinnacles to the mouth of the Salcombe estuary, with inspiring views in all directions, this is a coastal walk guaranteed to lift the spirits.

Sea N Shore

Enjoy the pre-determined route, the power of the waves and feel the adrenalin rush of low, medium and high jumps. Have you got what it takes?
