Day trips from Salcombe

We quite often base ourselves at Salcombe for boating holidays

We have a 5.5m Xpro rib and we would like to explore a bit further a field on day trips. Does anyone have any suggestions of interesting/ scenic places to visit where there is visitor berthing/ jetty facilities to get ashore to grab some lunch and may be even a cheeky beer?

River Yealm is within reach. Get there at near high tide and pop round to The Ship Inn. On a rising spring tide you have a couple of hours at the pubs quay. Lovely location and food.

The Ship Inn - Noss Mayo

Brave the Start Race and head for Dartmouth / Brixham.
The Start's fine if you keep close in

I'm not aware of anything too nasty Plymouth side so jump in and see how far you get. Plymouth has Bovisands Fort for a burger and coffee, you can call into one of the marinas and walk into town or use the facilities there.

The Tamar has some great pubs but not sure what effect the tide has and how far up you can get at low water.

You should be able to get over to Looe as well, 14nm from Plymouth (ish) with Plymouth being 24 ish from you. This link will give you some distances you can then work out where to go

Taking Cariboo down to that neck of the woods in July. Mrs NSS and I have rented a cottage near Kingston for a week so I'm also interested in suggestions for this area, particularly best options for launching.

There are various old small slips that I've seen driving around that end but none that I've ever used.

A quick google search brings up Salcombe and Newton Ferris.

You may be as well to see if there is a boat yard that will host for the week?
