Spectacular coastal walk. Many level areas so it’s not too strenuous. The views are incredible with Burgh Island a feature near Bantham. Gulls and Cormorants are the most common but a lot of other wildlife here.

You got to do it to appreciate it. The weather was amazing for our trip so we’ve witnessed Devon at its best. The daily coastal walks were breath taking. A cooling dip at the beaches helped break up the walks.
