Fishing

Hire a boat

Boats can be hired all-round the coast, but nowhere can mackerel hunting be enjoyed quite as effortlessly as from the lovely old fishing village of Beer in East Devon.

Located in a gorgeous cove on the Jurassic Coast, you can wander down the slipway and hire a small motor boat kitted out with rods and hand reels. The charter will give you a few tips and off you go – trawl with the handlines out, cast a line, or simply bob around in Lyme Bay, soaking up the sun and the unique scenery. Keep your catch and cook it up at home.

Fishing

Deep sea fishing

If small-craft and rock angling doesn't float your boat, try some deep-water sea fishing with various charters, who are happy to take groups up to 20 miles off shore from the Devon coast.

You can try your hand at everything from reef to wreck fishing, and species you can expect to hook include bass, cod, pollock, ray, sole, plaice, conger eel, mackerel and shark.

Should you be so lucky to catch a shark, they are tagged and returned to the wild, but you can take the rest home and cook them.

Exploring

Jurassic Stack

The Jurassic coast runs for 95 miles from East Devon to Dorset and across the coastline are stunning cliffs, impressive arches and sea stacks.

Ladram Bay is perfectly placed to explore places of interest and beauty and there are a number of pretty towns and villages to explore or you can get down and dirty and try your hand at fossil hunting.

The coastline provides visitors of all ages with an interesting and spectacular geological walk through history spanning the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, and with rocks recording 185 million years of the Earth’s history, it is something that needs to be seen and experienced.

Birdwatching

The Exe estuary supports a wealth of habitats and if you are a birdwatcher then you will not be disappointed. The area is a traditional stopping point for migratory birds, including Avocets, Curlews, Lapwings, and Brent Geese. So pack your binoculars and see which birds you can spot.
