Things to do
New Quay Street,
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.
PADI 5 Star IDC Diving Centre offering a full range of PADI diver training.
The Teignmouth Diving Centre also offers regular dives visiting the wrecks and reefs of Lyme Bay and Torbay. Its Dive Club meets monthly.
A wide range of dive gear is available from the Teign Diving Centre shop.
