Lovely walk along the coast path with great views across the bay towards Teignmouth and Torbay. Never looks the same depending on the time of year and the tide.

There are fabulous views from the cliff tops at Orcombe Point looking out over the surrounding coastline. Well worth walking to the beacon on top of Orcombe Point for the fresh air and the views.

Beautiful walks along the beach and cliff tops, just be careful not to get to close to the edges as they have a tendency to have cliff landslides and are not very safe. The walks itself have gorgeous views and you can walk from Exmouth...More
