The seaside resort of Dawlish Warren lies on the South Devon coast, at the mouth of the River Exe. It features a huge sandspit which juts across the river mouth, toward the town of Exmouth. The sandspit is home to a nature reserve where footpaths meander through dunes, mudflats and grasslands, and rare migratory wading birds and wildfowl are often spotted.
