Owner description: A 3 mile moderate walk along part of the South West Coast Path National Trail passing through an enchanted landscape of rocky spires and jumbled pinnacles to the mouth of the Salcombe estuary, with inspiring views in all directions, this is a coastal walk guaranteed to lift the spirits.

“Quite a climb - but worth it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Just take your time and enjoy the steady climb alongside the Salcombe estuary. The views across to East Portlemouth and out to sea are not to be missed. The colourful scene of yachts passing back and forth simply adds to a wonderful back drop. Take a picnic and make a leisurely day of it.

“Awesome views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Pretty good cliff path not the best if you have vertigo! reasonably well maintained and those amazing sea views all year round - best out of season when it's quiet.

“Stunning walk...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

The best way to enjoy this walk is to park in/near the boat trailer park on the far side of the town and then walk through the town itself and along the estuary to Bolt Head and Sharpitor Gardens. If you are feeling really fit then press on to Soar Mill Cove. Either way some of the walking can be a bit of a challenge up and down the quite steep roadways/footpaths that connect the small bays along the estuary but the environment and views are worth it. Salcombe is a beautiful place that I would recommend to anyone...

Walked to Soar Cove and back in the evening. Beautiful views! But don't underestimate it... You should wear good shoes.

Each year I do this wonderful walk! It lasts me almost a year before I get withdrawal symptoms! Spectacular views all the way and back!
