Widemouth Bay

Widemouth Bay is in Cornwall, but it’s an easy drive from North Devon. As the name suggests it’s a wide-mouthed bay (though to save embarrassment you must pronounce it as “Widmuth”). It’s very popular with surfers but for the less energetic it has some beautiful rock formations reminiscent of abstract sculpture, like those pictured below, to gaze at. There’s also an excellent café.
