The South West coastline is stunning with many changes of scenery: magnificent cliffs with views of Lundy, one of the largest sand dune systems in Britain now designated an area of special scientific interest, long winding estuaries with large flocks of wading birds, and vast expanses of sandy beaches making this area one of the UK’s most popular with surfers.
