Seaton is a pretty, out-of-the way kind of spot, with a lovely shingle beach which is great for walking along this stretch of the coast. There are views over to St.George's Island (Looe Island) - now a Cornish Wildlife Trust reserve - and on a clear day, you can see out to the Eddystone lighthouse.

Legend has recorded that there was once a significant commercial town that went by the name of Seaton, that existed in the days when Plymouth was still only a small fishing village. At the height of its prosperity, the town was apparently overwhelmed by sand, which was due to the curse of a local mermaid who was a little put out by the treatment given to her by the local Seaton sailors...

You can choose between a fine village green on the one hand, or the beach on the other, and there is a pub, two cafes, and a restaurant to choose refreshments and food from!

The beach is open for dog walking all year, but please pick up any little happenings afterwards!
