How to get to East Portlemouth
Unspoiled East Portlemouth has the best of both worlds. Situated a stone's throw from bustling Salcombe on the opposite side of the estuary, East Portlemouth enjoys the quiet and peace of a small village surrounded by beautiful beaches, rolling Devon fields and the majestic National Trust Coast Path.

By Car: Take the A379 to Stokenham. Follow the signs at the mini roundabout.

By ferry from Salcombe:
The ferry runs daily throughout the year from Ferry Pier (Easter - October) and Whitestrand (November - Easter). Tel 01548 842053 for further information.

First ferry on weekdays is 8:00am and 8:30am at weekends.

Summer (1st April - 31st October): Continuous service until 7:00pm (or later depending on weather and season).

Winter (1st November - 31st March): Half-hourly service with the last ferry at 5:30pm. No service between 1-2pm.

Parking: There is a car park situated at the far end of Millbay Road - the other end away from Mill Bay beach. This car park is open during Spring Bank Holiday week and then for the months of July and August. Price is £4 per car. For further information please call Jayne or James on 07717 666529.
