Salcombe

New to Ribnet but lots of very useful info for a new rib owner

Going to Salcombe for the first time and grateful for any advice on places to go. Google earth shows various coves / beaches etc that can only be reached by boat.

Any advice gratefully received

Many thanks

It depends on the weather - Starehole bay is where the watersports usually take place as it's a bit sheltered from the prevailing westerlies. Sunny cove which is the last beach on the left going out of the estuary is a popular anchorage but it can get difficult to get in and out when it's choppy. Elender Cove near Prawle point is similar and hard to get to by foot. Hope Cove and Burgh Island (Pilchard Inn) are worth a visit but watch out for the tides! If you have a tender the Millbrook at Southpool creek is worth a visit as is the Lobster Pot in Kingsbridge - you can get there in a 7 metre as well, just need to plan the tides a bit better.

Hope that helps - let me know if you have any more questions!
