In the novel Towards Zero, Easterhead Bay is a newly created summer resort by the coast, where the river Tern meets the sea. Saltcreek is located on the opposite shore of the river mouth. Angus MacWhirter stays at the Easterhead Bay Hotel in the town.

Real world counterpart[]

Based on the map in the novel, it appears that the River Tern corresponds to the Kingsbridge estuary in the South Hams district of Devon and Easterhead Bay corresponds to the town of Salcombe.
