The English Riviera has a strong history of being a premier coastal resort, with a tourism sector that supports local and regional businesses, creates local jobs, and contributes to the sense of pride in place and quality of life. However, in recent times the English Riviera has struggled to keep pace with changing market needs, with the impact of Covid-19, climate crisis and most recently the cost-of-living crisis are creating unprecedented challenges.

The English Riviera has many wonderful assets and a proud and committed partnership of business and public agencies that want to see the destination flourish. This Destination Management Plan (DMP) sets out the priority actions and delivery tasks that can help the destination succeed. It is informed by local voices but driven by the needs and wants of the visitor.
