Bigbury-on-Sea

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Devon  /  Bigbury-on-Sea
Bigbury-on-Sea is a village located on the south coast of Devon approximately 270yd from the tidal island of Burgh Island. It falls within the civil parish of Bigbury and the local governmental district of South Hams.Not to be confused with the inland village of Bigbury, Bigbury-on-Sea village is on the coast above the largest sandy beach in South Devon facing south to Bigbury Bay. At the start of the 20th century Bigbury-on-Sea consisted of a few fishermen’s cottages with fish cellars. The village grew with the growth in holidaymaking and now has two cafes, and by the mainland side of causeway is the Burgh Island Causeway resort built in 1998 replacing the burnt out Tom Crocker public house after a controversial planning application. The resort is made up of privately owned and holiday let flats and a private leisure club with indoor pool and gym. Surprisingly the Devon Coastal Path runs behind the resort.The large sandy beach is very popular for wave and wind based water sports. It lost its Blue Flag status in 2012 due to water quality issues.
