Situated on the east coast of Devon, where the River Exe meets the sea.
Exmouth occupies a sheltered position on the eastern side of the Exe. Until the eighteenth century it was a small fishing village like many others around the coast. The main shopping centre is situated around the Strand and the Parade, and here too, buses may be obtained to the neighbouring towns and villages.
Nearby is the Dock, Exmouth’s small harbour, to which used to come ships bringing in timber from Scandinavia. From here pleasure trips can be taken up the River Exe and along the coast, eastwards as far as Lyme Regis, and westwards to Torbay.
A ferry also runs from Exmouth across the Exe. Sandy Beaches. Eastwards from the Dock stretches two miles of sandy beaches, which are clean and safe when used with reasonable care: any danger spots are indicated by flags.
Further eastwards, Maer Bay and Sandy Bay also offer good pleasant bathing facilities. From the pier as far as Orcombe Point runs the Esplanade and its eastern continuation, Marine Drive, from which extensive views over the sea can be obtained.
