Roundham Head - South West Coast Path Walk
4.5
About
A wheelchair-friendly 1 mile walk on the South West Path around Paignton's Roundham Head, the hub of the town's sixteenth-century fishing industry. The headland's rocky red layered cliffs are topped with pines and sycamores. There are extensive views, northwards across Tor Bay and over Goodrington Sands to Brixham in the south. On a good day you can even see across Lyme Bay to Portland.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The green patch around roundham has a winding trail that is interesting to walk down to the beach. Yet, the areas between roundham are a bit touristy, cheap food, a lot of people.

Very disappointed. We went early evening but ALL the bollard lights on the path down to goodrigton were not working so we went to Brixham whose lights were working.

What else can I say........it's beautiful, even on a cloudy day. Some of it is a tad steep, and the cliff walk down into Goodrington Bay is very steep, so people in non-motorized mobility equipment might find it hard going.
Highly recommend for the views alone!

The views from Roundham head looking out to Brixham and Torquay are beautiful. A favourite dog walk of mine (but beware sheer drops around here so keep your dog safe). Continuing on into Goodrington along the coast path provides further wonderful views and Goodrington itself is a beauty to behold.

Some wonderful views from the top of Roundham Cliff with plenty of places to stop, sit down and gaze at the beautiful vista laid out before you.
