Welcome to North Devon Coast AONB

The North Devon Coast Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are nationally designated to protect and conserve the 171 km2 of distinctive and magnificent coastal landscapes between the Cornish border and Exmoor National Park.

The landscape varies from wild coastal cliffs, spectacular waterfalls and rocky coves to sand dunes and beaches, wooded combes and valleys with sheltering villages.

The AONB Partnership supports sustainable development for our coastal communities and the rural economy, whilst conserving the outstanding wildlife, landscape and heritage of North Devon.
