The beach facilities include:  3  Beach Cafes;  Fishing;  Lime Kiln Car park; Children’s Play area; Seafront with level walking; Toilets for the disabled; Dogs allowed on parts of the beach May to Sept (leaflets available), and Part of the South West Coast Path.

The Budleigh Salterton coastline forms the western most section of Jurassic coast, and the cliffs on either side of the town are the unique Red Devonian Sandstone. Budleigh Salterton has a breathtaking bay within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natuaral Beauty.
