Photographer's Note

Salcombe boasts some of the best sailing waters in the UK, sheltered for dinghy sailing and windsurfing. It is also within range of many amazing diving points.

Salcombe Harbour provides a natural haven for nature and humans alike. Birds flock here in thousands and the estuary supports a wealth of plant and fish life, some of which is extremely rare. The region's warm (almost Mediterranean) climate enables many species of plant to flourish here, even if they are found nowhere else in the United Kingdom. Dolphins and basking sharks are just some of the frequent visitors to the estuary waters, which also form one of the UK's most popular ports for yachtsmen.

Two beaches, South Sands and North sands are to the South of Salcombe, linked by road or regular passenger ferry to Salcombe Town. Overbecks house and Garden lies high above the beaches on the cliffs above Salcombe Bar. In summer the garden is a stunning sub-tropical rainbow of scents and sights, and the amazing backdrop of the Salcombe Estuary completes the picture.
