Devon travel guide

4.1
Beaches · Theme Parks · Zoos
One of England’s favorite summer vacation destinations, Devon features two very different coastlines, both of which are packed with white sandy beaches known for their turquoise waters and near-perfect surfing conditions. Numerous resort towns and sheltered harbors provide lots of holiday options, many of which have retained their old-world appeal in the face of modernization and attract tourism from all over the country and across the globe. Get away from the tourist crowds by venturing deeper into the region’s countryside, which is dotted with sleepy villages and sweeping green pastures. Devon’s country inns and traditional pubs are well known for offering holidays full of hearty regional cuisine, as well as charming their guests with quintessential Devonian hospitality and good humor.
