Teignmouth is a great place to enjoy water sports. There’s the beach front for sea swimming, kayaking, sailing or even surfing (when there’s a swell) and then there’s the back beach where you can mess about on boats or paddle boards on the river.

For tuition and equipment hire, go to SeaSports South West on the back beach by the Newquay Inn.

This professional water sports centre offers courses in windsurfing, kayaking, paddle boarding and sailing and sells and hires equipment to help you enjoy the water safely.
