Bigbury is like the rest of the south coast - changeable. At times there are great waves as you'll see in the mags. Other times it's basically bump and jump. The whole location is absolutely beautiful however.

Best port tack wavesailing in England? Waves start at Bantham and peel to Bigbury - that's 800 m. Easterlies are awesome here. West and northwesterlies are good at mid to high tide. At times the waves can get massive here. However, it's very relaxed and serves a good cappuccino.

Getting there is a bit tricky as it is quite a steep and scenic location. Good camping and B&B.

I have lived in South Devon for 30 years and i would call Bigbury and possibly exmouth as my 2 home spots. Bigbury has produced the goods as far as i am concerned. s/w or w for me is best, have snapped masts a plentyover the years, had to paddle / washed in on many occasions, but I have always thought of this as an extreme BUT safe place to sail as long as there are others out. Other than when its a storm I have found the waves to be forgiving as you can sail out through them as close as you can get to to Burgh Island (without losing any wind) and miss the big breaks. The pilchard inn, the facilities, the scenery all great.
