Welcome to Coastwise North Devon

Look below and around the website for Coastwise activities in North Devon which has some of the most spectacular and varied coastal scenery in the country and wonderful seascapes. The coastal and marine life is amongst the richest in the country.

Wild and unspoiled places are interspersed by coastal communities and popular resorts where livelihoods owe much to the coast and sea.

It is the aim of Coastwise, an independent community initiative, to increase understanding of the coast, its wildlife, and its importance to North Devon in the past, present and the future. We do this through sharing knowledge, undertaking conservation activities and projects, and addressing current issues.

There's lots more, including all the latest pics on Facebook:  Link -
