Salcombe sits in a salt water sea inlet surrounded by beautiful coastal scenery and sandy beaches.  The attractive town has narrow streets filled with a wide range of shops and excellent restaurants and pubs, making it very popular with tourists. 

Salcombe Harbour is protected by a bar that should not be crossed on an ebb tide with strong onshore winds.  At other times entry is perfectly safe and this beautiful harbour is a popular cruising stopover, often busy in the summer months.  Other than the local shell fishing fleet, there is no commercial traffic and the town caters well for visiting craft with dedicated moorings and a range of marine services.
