It was overcast and extremely blustery on our visit but the view was still spectacular! If I went again I would try and get there without driving down the single track road to the car park as I found that a bit stressful. I encountered some rather large cars coming the other way with no passing places nearby and I... More

Outstanding historic local beauty spot, as magnificent in Winter bad weather as Summer. High cliffs so respect and beware. On a clear day or night offers World Class views.

We spent a day here and even though we didn't see any dolphins or porpoises we did see the red cattle and some fritillary butterflies. A very nice place. You won't walk for hours, we were lucky with the weather so we could sit and enjoy the seascape.

On a summers day this is an absolutely gorgeous place to go for a day out or picnic. Stunning views, wildlife like sheep, cows and dolphins and historical sites too. There are old cannons and buildings to looks around all for free. And when you get tired there's a cafe from which you can see for miles! You can even... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Berry Head, but make sure you register your correct licence plate number when paying for parking at the meter. A camera times you on arrival and exit, I must have entered a wrong digit for my registration so the system assumed I hadn’t paid so a week after our visit I have a demand... More

Although we didn't see any sea life here the views are stunning. The way we walked was probably the longest, up through pebble beach, it's tiring and you need water! Beautiful place to go if you like the outdoors. Huge quarry you can look down into, that has the remainder of a car inside and lots of great photo opportunities... More

A short stroll from Brixham leads you to the most stunning views. Dolphins swimming in the sea birds nesting on the cliffs (viewed from the birdhide). A fantastic cafe serving amazing milkshakes 😀

The views from Berry Head on a sunny clear day make the short trek from the port very very worth it. We are very glad we forced the children to march all the way! The steps do mean you need to be moderately fit.

Very nice place saw some Porpoises jumping and the cafe was very nice, car park at £1 an hour is not bad price either so if that way it's worth a visit
