Thurlestone, named after the large sea rock with a hole through the centre famously painted by the artist, Turner, is beautiful with its wide sandy beach owned by the National Trust. The wide sandy beach is backed by a nature reserve where rare and exciting birds have been spotted. Those preferring exercise to sunbathing can take off along the South Devon Coastal Path for wonderful walks with spectacular views. Picturesque and historic Thurlestone village, slightly inland, with its 13th Century church and pretty thatched cottages also offers a pub, a hotel and post office/village stores.
