Devon is located on the peninsula that stretches out from the southwestern part of the mainland of England and points towards the Atlantic Ocean with a southern border along the English Channel. It is an area known for its coastline, quaint villages and has the nickname of being the English Riviera. Within Devon are two major park systems, Exmoor National Park and Dartmoor National Park. Devon is also very proud of their beautiful coastal landscape and have dedicated 65% of the coastline for protection under the Heritage Coast Program; which is part of Britain's National Trust. The southern coast of Devon also has the nickname of the Jurassic Coast, full of sandstone and limestone that has been whittled down over the ages by the ocean that lies between Devon and Dorset. A popular activity is to hike the "South West Coast Path" which follows the coastline of Devon. It was originally a path used by the Coastguards who walked the coastal paths and patrolled the area for smugglers until 1856. It was necessary to patrol the coastal area as many of the towns; Ilfracombe, Sidemouth, Branscombe and Barnstaple, were known for their smuggling activities. Though today it is doubtful that you will find many pirates still hanging about. Exeter is the county town.
