Why visit Beer?

The village of Beer is located on the south coast of Devon, with the chalk white cliffs of the coastline forming part of the Jurassic Coast. Beer has a long history as a fishing village and many boats still set out everyday, returning in the evening with their catch of the day. Mackerel is particularly plentiful in the area and there are many daily boat excursions that offer fishing trips. As well as fishing, the village has a history of smuggling, as the many coves and caves would make ideal hiding spots for contraband. Indeed, some of the fishermen many years ago had a sideline in smuggling, due to their extensive knowledge of navigating the waters.

If you like walking then you can enjoy miles of coastal trails along the South West Coast Path. Head east towards Salcombe or west to Bantham.

One of the best activities in Beer is to visit the quarry caves. This man-made limestone underground system has resulted from 2000 years of quarrying beer stone, most often used for building parts of cathedrals and churches. Enjoy a guided tour through the caverns and discover how the workmen quarried these blocks of stone and the dangers they faced.
