One of the East Devon coastline’s most important aspects is that it makes up a key part of the UNESCO designated Jurassic Coast, a 90 mile stretch of geologically important coastline which runs from the town of Exmouth into the neighbouring county of Dorset. One community after another sits nestled along this coastline, each with their own identity and well worth exploration.

The area is largely unspoilt by overdevelopment, and a great way to explore it is on foot, either using the South West Coast Path, or along one of the many inland trails, including the East Devon Way, a 40 mile trail that winds its way through the untouched landscape, passing through eight villages and crossing five rivers. For lovers of peace, quiet, and plenty to see and do, East Devon is the ideal destination.
