Much more than a guidebook, Secret Beaches: Southwest showcases the secluded shores that are strung bead-like along the coastlines of Devon, Cornwall and Dorset. Through detailed walk directions and inspiring photographs, it leads you down forgotten woodland trails and along dramatic clifftop pathways to hidden coves known only to a handful of locals. The first travel book to make use of the very latest QR-code technology, it allows you to download all the information you require - from walk directions and maps to details on the best place to stop for something to eat and drink - to your phone. So you don't even have to carry the book with you when you set out to explore... 'A very personal selection of beaches from a clear water-lover, this is a beautifully shot guide to the Southwest' Kate Rew, author of Wild Swim. 'A fabulous and fascinating introduction to the beautiful shores of the Southwest' Mat Follas, Masterchef winner and patron of The Wild Garlic restaurant, Dorset. 'A pleasing mix of fresh writing, solid information and genuinely useful techno-wizardry' Clare Gogerty, editor of Coast magazine. A guidebook of superlative quality that will lead you to the 50 most secluded beaches and coves along the shoreline of southwest Britain. With over 250 beautiful photographs, maps and suggestions such as where to find the local alehouse or tea room, it will make your holiday in the Westcountry truly memorable. With large format photographs and informative and witty copy, it is to be enjoyed by ocean surfers and sofa surfers alike.
