The Exe estuary has plenty of different activities for you to spend your time, on land or on water. Recognised for some fantastic watersports opportunities, coastal walks, photography, bird watching, sailing, jogging, swimming - it's all part of what attracts people to the area.

Our friends at the Exe Estuary Management Partnership have devised a fantastic list of land-based and water-based activities for you to explore.

Do remember that codes of conduct govern the majority of activities and we encourage everyone to "share this space" with wildlife and other visitors, at the same time as thoroughly enjoying themselves!

If your interests are more commercially based, they have also compiled a list of helpful information and contacts about the most common types of business interests on and around the Exe.
