Challaborough Beach is a sheltered horseshoe cove with a beautiful, sandy beach and rugged cliffs as a backdrop, in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The beach is great for adults and children. At low tide, rock pools are exposed allowing both children and adults alike, the chance to get close to the marine life that lives around the shore. The beach is ideal for surfing with fantastic surfing conditions, created by a combination of the beach’s shape and sand banks, making it popular with surfers and body-boarders. With views of nearby Burgh Island, and hilly stretches of the South West Coast Path climbing out of the bay on either side, this natural unassuming cove is a little gem.
