Located on the south coast of Devon in the UK the Exe Estuary boasts some fantastic features; it is an internationally important site for wildlife, it is the start of the Jurassic Coast, it has blue flag beaches and it offers countless opportunities to enjoy the Estuary through recreational clubs, bird watching sites and boat trips.
