Don't be a slave to your SatNav - mine wanted to take me down unmade very narrow lanes to get to Wembury Bay

The path is easy to do in small chunks, with access all along the path, especially in South Devon. the walk from Thurlestone to Bantham Beach always delights.

Take a walk up and down the wonderful coastal path from Wembury beach to the Yealm and then back again and visit the Odd Wheel Pub in Wembury for lunch or an evening meal or quite possibly both in the same day.
