Love the beach? Love Burgh Island Apartments…

If you love being near to the beach on holiday, you can’t get much closer than at our Burgh Island Apartments, overlooking one of south Devon’s biggest and most striking sandy beaches at Bigbury-on-Sea.

Just 20 yards from the beach, and looking out towards pretty Burgh Island over the low-tide sandy causeway, this is a truly excellent and greatly appreciated development of 29 high quality apartments, of which we let 14. 

All the apartments – such as L550 - have those sensational views, are double-glazed, marvellously light, with smart, modern kitchens and large, open-plan living areas, plus glazed doors to balconies or terraces.

Some apartments, including L542, are dog friendly. Dogs are welcome on the beach, although they are restricted to certain areas during the summer.

All apartments have access to a well-equipped and stylish Leisure Club, with a fine indoor kidney-shaped swimming pool, spa pool, gym, sauna and changing rooms and showers. The smart bar provides coffee and drinks through the day and light meals, cream teas and a children’s menu from 10am to 7pm, served either in the Club or for you to take to your apartment. A comfy lounging area has sofas and WiFi Broadband so you can sit and upload your day’s photos to Facebook, or take to the outside terrace facing the sea.

The views over the sea to the south and west, and at low tide of a huge expanse of smooth washed yellow sand reaching to Burgh Island, are outstanding. The island's jolly pub, The Pilchard, is fun to visit, via a long-legged sea tractor at high tide, or by foot at low tide. Or perhaps enjoy a cocktail at the island’s Art Deco hotel?

Right by the beach you’ll find the Venus Café and Venus Riders watersports with hire and tuition available for windsurfing, surfing and kayaking. The Venus Company has kindly given our holidaymakers a special discount in our What Shall We Do Today? 2012 guide - £5 off when you spend £10 or more at its cafés, shops or watersports centres. The less energetic can while away the hours paddling, building sandcastles or exploring the rock pools.

Away from the beach, you can enjoy pretty walks along the coastal path, boat trips along the river Dart or a round of golf at Bigbury’s splendid eighteen hole course with wonderful sea views.
