The most southern part of devon, and one of the most southernly places in England, Salcombe makes for a great summer holiday in Salcombe holiday homes. This coastal town, which was famous for crabbing prior to its tourism boom, is now famous for its beaches and stunningly beautiful villages. Salcombe holiday homes also attract many holidaymakers who have an interest in sailing possibly due to the sailing regatta held there every August, similar to that of Kiel Week in Germany. However Salcombe doesn't just offer sailing, but an incredible choice of water-sports such as Kayaking, canoeing and surfing just to name a few.
