Marine Conservation Society recommended
Dawlish Warren offers more than just a traditional bucket-and-spade beach – it also boasts an internationally protected National Nature Reserve conserving an array of different habitats, including salt marshes, fresh water ponds, wet meadows and woodland, which serve as a haven for a great variety of wildlife.
From the mouth of the Exe Estuary to the cascading Dawlish Brook
Situated on the South West coastal path, the beach stretches from the Exe Estuary to the traditional seaside town of Dawlish, so you can enjoy an amble or cycle ride along the marked trails, feel soft sand underfoot, stroll along the *sea wall and admire the famous Dawlish black swans all in one day, if you have the energy! Or you can spend a lazy day day paddling in the sea, building sand castles and eating ice cream in the sun.
Dawlish Warren beach has a large grassed play area where you can enjoy a picnic and there are sand dunes behind the beach where you can shelter from coastal winds. There’s also plenty of children’s amusements, shops, pubs and cafes, all safely away from the road.
Sun, sea and safety
A perfect place for safe seaside fun: during the main season, an experienced team of RNLI lifeguards are on hand to monitor beach safety and watch over beach-goers who venture into the water.
So much to enjoy
Dawlish Warren beach provides fun both in and out of the water; beyond the gently sloping sands, there are lots of entertainment attractions for people of all ages to enjoy, including Go-Karts, a mini fun fair theme park, crazy golf and the long-established Pavilion amusement arcade. There are also shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants.
During the summer there are many free open-air events, children’s entertainers and spectacular firework displays.
Second to none for seaside fun
A treat on all the senses, Dawlish Warren is the ultimate seaside resort. Perfect for creating those wonderful family holiday memories that will be treasured by everyone for years to come.
