A beautiful, picture-postcard Devon fishing village, Beer is the perfect destination for day trippers visiting the Devonshire area.
Nestling snugly in Lyme Bay along 95 miles of Jurassic Coast, Beer features a wonderful little shingle beach, a natural suntrap beneath the picturesque white cliffs above.
The sheltered waters of Beer beach are bathed in sun during the summer months, thanks largely to the huge limestone cliffs that offer protection from the wind. A working beach, the brightly coloured wooden fishing boats and their winches, nets and floats only add to the beach's charm and beauty. A soothing and calm afternoon can easily be spent on the shingles watching the fishermen landing their daily catches of lobster, crab, scallops and fresh fish.
During May and October, fishing trips are offered from the beach to catch some of the many mackerel that are abundant in the waters around Beer. Boats are also available for hire and the majestic Beer Luggers can often be seen sailing in the bay on a summer's evening.
Like many West Country coastal hamlets, Beer has a historic past cemented in smuggling. Devon's most notorious smuggler, Jack Rattenbury, was born in Beer in 1778. He became a fisherman and was captured by the French, which allowed him to have numerous adventures on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
From Beer hotels, adventurers should take the time to visit the Beer Quarry caves while in the town, a vast man-made complex of underground caverns. They were created by centuries of quarrying the famous Beer Stone, which went towards building 24 cathedrals, including St. Pauls. It also contributed to the construction of grand royal buildings such as Buckingham Palace.
Visitors can take a tour through the impressive cave system and see the awe-inspiring halls of vaulted roofs and pillars, which have been likened to a vast underground cathedral.
Around 30 miles from Beer, visitors to the area can find Crealy Great Adventure Park, an award-winning family attraction. Open all year, the park has over 60 rides and attractions set in over 100 acres of beautiful Devon countryside.
