Downderry was recently noted by the Sunday Times in a list of the top ten "Best Places to Live by the sea". Golf is available at Portwrinkle, or Looe Bindown. The South West Coast Path is accessed nearby with parts of the neighbouring coastline in the ownership of the National Trust. The beach has a slipway and offers the opportunity to keep and launch boats (by permit). Seaton beach benefits from a RNLI Lifeguard station during the summer. The sailing waters of the area are favoured by yachtsmen and deep water moorings are available on the Rivers Lynher and Tamar at St Germans, Saltash and Fowey/Polruan.
Saltash has a Waitrose store on its northern outskirts and the city of Plymouth offers an abundance of facilities centred around the historic and fascinating waterfront areas of the Barbican and Hoe.
