     If you’re a fisherman then you can either spend the day beach fishing, or tackle some of the larger catches that lay just offshore and you may lucky enough to spot a dolphin!

     Back on land the English Riviera plays host to a dramatic section of the South West Coastal Path, the breathtaking landscapes and rare wildlife are perfect for novice walkers and experienced hikers alike. There are also plenty of off-road tracks for keen mountain bikers.
