One of the easternmost beaches in Devon, the shingle beach at Beer lies on the South Devon coast just to the southwest of Seaton.
The southeast facing pebble beach at Beer is sheltered from most storms and always seems to be bustling with activity. Still active as a fishing port, bathers and deckchairs share the beach with fishing boats and lobster pots.
The resort is small enough to retain its character as a fishing village, but large enough to offer all the facilities visitors could need.
Beer offers boat trips for pleasure or for sea angling and as expected it is an excellent place to buy fresh fish straight from the water.
All the usual facilities are to be found behind the beach. There is the 'Fine Foundation Centre' to tell you more about the locality and nearby Pecorama above the village is well worth a visit.
Geologists will be interested in the Beer Quarry Caves as well as the surrounding Chalk cliffs dating from the Cretaceous Era (About 70 mya) as part of the East Devon and Dorset World Heritage Site - 'The Jurassic Coast'.
