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...more
Bantham Beach Car Park, Thurlestone TQ7 3AJ, England
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.
Before doing the coastal walk I recommend that you put on your wet suit and going ‘drifting’ from Bantham Sailing Club down the River Avon and then climb out on the beach once you’ve drifted past the headland. Loved it so much just letting Mother...More
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.
What a great little place, perfectly formed and very charming with a great choice of fish on the menu. Flavours, spices used just complimented everything. Service and the warm family feel made this a great night to remember. Loved sitting on a table with people...More
This was the first coastal walk of our break in Thurlestone. We had a beautiful sunny day and this together with the views made it very special. The walk skims the golf course for probably half of the circular walk so we kept our spaniel...More

It’s a long distance. Depending on which way you walk back you’ll have to deal with some steep hills. The one at bantham had the heart rate up, especially in the current weather. Might be better to go the other way from thurlestone to hope cove. There a stop around half way for a coffee, lunch, drink. You could also take a break on the beach.
