The shore is a renowned location for rockpooling and a haven for diverse marine life, including crabs, limpets and starfish. The Wembury Marine Centre is a great place to learn more, with displays and talks.

The Old Mill Cafe, right by the beach, is a great spot for picking up ice creams, teas and coffees, and serves light meals.
