“Clean Beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

The beach was very clean and had good access via a ramp or steps. My children 6 and 10 years old loved the beach and the nearby arcades - we especially enjoyed the freshly cooked doughnuts mmmm.

“Diverse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

On the one hand you have the tacky fairground rides and amusements tempered by the lovely nature reserve and beaches. Nice walks all around.

“Good for families and bird watchers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

Dawlish Warren is at the mouth of the river Exe just outside Dawlish.There is a beach a mixture of sand, stone and shingle. RNLI lifeguard in the season. Resort manager. Sand dunes behind which are part of a National Nature Reserve. The whole area is well known for the variety of birds that can be spotted. Information Centre. There are hotels, pubs, cafes and takeaways. Arcade and a couple of shops. Loads of pay and display parking. Large grassed area, rides, slides and a Go Kart track. You can walk along the promenade and sea defences to Dawlish Town in about 45 minutes; easy level walking but some slippery steps near the town. Please be aware that this walk is only separated from a fast railway line by a low wall, so keep dogs on a lead, and watch children. Nice to be so close to the trains though, the driver may give you a blast! This is a nice area with something for everyone. If the beach had not lost so much sand in recent years I would have given it 5,
