This moderate 5.4 mile circular walk goes from Exmouth Station out to Littleham Cross, then through countryside out to the South West Coast Path. Passing Orcombe Point and the Geoneedle the walk leads back along the cliff top and past historic buildings in The Beacon.

A lovely leisurely walk along the seafront or beach. Flat so great for wheelchairs etc. Lovely sandy beach with rockpools. The Orcombe Point is lovely to sit under the sandstone cliffs.

Beautiful vistas in all directions, we have the benefit of sea and estuary views. Unspoilt Exmouth seafront has changed little over the years.

It gets high on cliff for a wonderful view of the beach and the bay. The views are very different dependent on the time of day. The tide goes out a long way at exmouth revealing an expanse of flat sand (ideally for ball games...More

I normally do this walk with the dog! You have to start the walk from the Exmouth side at around low tide to walk around the coastline safely. Once you've gone around the first headland, Orcombe Point, the views open up and even on a...More
