Sailing is not merely a popular leisure activity - it is woven through many aspects of the town and is a vital thread in its fabric. In addition to sailing boats, it is not uncommon to see motorboats, stand-up paddle-boards, kayaks, ferries and surfboards all making good use of the estuary and coastal waters.
Part of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) as well as being a Marine Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Marine Nature Reserve, Salcombe has much to offer nature lovers.
