Things to do in Exmouth this summer

Stunning sea views and miles of golden sands, the Devon town of Exmouth is a wonderful place to visit in the summer. Here are some of our favourite things to do in Exmouth during the summer season.


Get out on the water

Kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, a boat trip, swimming…when the conditions are good, we recommend getting out on the water in whatever form possible, and soaking up the mental and physical benefits of being in or on the sea. Of all the things to do in Exmouth during the summer, enjoying the miles of golden beach and beautiful blue waters should be high up on your list.

Take a boat cruise

For one of the most memorable things to do in Exmouth, enjoy a boat trip along the Exe Estuary. Award-winning Stuart Line Cruises offer a whole array of trips including 1 hour round trips, full day tours and evening cruises. Watch out for special one-off events on board too, including live music, fish and fizz, and geology day trips.

Do a beach clean

Gather up some family and friends and do your bit to help keep our coasts clear, by combining a leisurely stroll along the sea front with a beach clean. For top tips and a list of what you’ll need, check out our handy beach clean guide.

Enjoy seafood overlooking the water

Enjoying fresh seafood overlooking the water should be top of your list of things to do in Exmouth this summer, and at our seafood restaurant in Exmouth you can’t get much closer to the water. In the warmer months, part of our restaurant transforms into an incredible outdoor deck with uninterrupted views over the Exe Estuary towards Dawlish Warren Beach. So you can soak up the sea air and sunshine whilst enjoying your fresh seafood feast. It doesn’t get much better than that! Our seafood restaurant gets very busy in the summer, so make sure you book a table online to avoid disappointment.
