Overview
More
With its sandy beach and clean surf, as well as views across the water to Burgh island, Bantham is a popular hideaway holiday spot for the rich and famous. The 3.8 mile walk on the Coast Path passes the thatched cottages in the picturesque villages dating from the 16th century. There are tales of Vikings and smugglers. Archaeologists have found that some settlements here go back to the Stone Age.

This is a relatively moderate walk with glorious scenery. The going is not too strenuous and would suit those less used to lengthy or arduous walks. The views across to Burgh Island and its sea tractor are very distinctive. The walk does involve crossing a...More
