Coastal Adventure Challenge

WHERE: Larkstone Watersports Hub (Ilfracombe)


COST: £38pp

WHEN: daily (see bottom of page for availability)

BOOKING: see bottom of page


This is a great activity for families and groups of friends


Explore the wreckers route at Ilfracombe, you'll experience the dramatic and rugged North Devon coastline from a new perspective. This adventure takes you through the exposed depths of rocks and gullies. Scramble the rocks to get to secluded hidden beaches with dramatic cliffs.

After the twists and turns through the labyrinth of rocks and gullies you'll get to rock jump into the pools and sea.  To make it a true coastal adventure you'll get to light your own fire with flint and steel to cook some tasty treats.

Although the Coastal Adventure Challenge has many similar aspects to coasteering, this is a less adrenaline activity and more about exploring and adventure.

If you have been thinking about coasteering but are not too keen on the big jumps and sea swims then this is the activity for you.


Minimum age: 7 years old

Participants aged 7 - 12 must be accompanied by an adult on the activity. Any participants aged 12 - 18 must have an adult present at Larkstone (but they need not take part).

We're only a short 15-25 minute drive from popular holiday destinations like Croyde and Woolacombe


We used to run activities in Croyde, around the Baggy Point headland. It can be an amazing location for extreme sports, but is very tide and swell-dependent and due to the fact that we had to share the route with lots of other companies, we now use the picturesque route around Hele Bay, which is only a 25 minute drive from Croyde.
