Popular with locals and visitors alike, Salcombe Estuary is situated within an area of outstanding natural beauty famed for its sailing waters and Lincombe Boatyard, Winters Marine, provides the perfect base for exploring these sheltered, calm waters, whether under sail or motor.

The estuary’s many creeks and valleys with their rich ecosystem of bird and plant life provide the perfect area to discover, leading to picturesque villages. Sail alongside dolphins and basking sharks and watch the egrets, herons and cormorants among birdlife.

At the entrance to the estuary is Salcombe with the beaches of East Portlemouth and South Sands nearby, while at the head is Kingsbridge with its attractive quayside.

Lincombe Boatyard has excellent facilities with its two hard standing slipways making it easy to launch and recover your boat at most states of the tide and car parking and fresh water facilities are also available. Space needs to be booked early to avoid disappointment.

Facilities for car and boat parking run from April 1 to September 30. All boats and equipment are left at owners risk.
