Exmouth boasts fine gardens and parks, a long sandy beach and a wide promenade.

It has a gentle shelving beach with sand and shingle towards the water. It rarely has surf unless wind generated storm surf. Rock pools are accessible during low tide.

There is nearby pay parking for over 1,000 vehicles.

A lifeguard is based between the red and yellow flags daily from May until September, 10.30am to 5pm.

Swimmers should be aware of the strong tidal currents. Don't be tempted to swim to the sand bar (pole sands). The strong current between the beach and sand bar is very dangerous, as can be the craft using the channel to come in and out of the River Exe.

The beach is cleaned both mechanically and manually on a daily basis in the summer and monthly in the winter. Dog bins are provided and dogs are welcome all year on parts of the beach and on the main beach from October to the end of April.

Toilets are  available nearby, including facilities for people with disabilities.

Cafés, restaurants, kiosks and pubs are plentiful on the front and in the town. You will also find deck chair hire, swing boats, jet skiing, surfboard and canoe hire, windsurfing,  sailing and boat trips.
