Easy and short climb. Climbed for sunset and it did not disappoint, beautiful sunset with a lovely orange sky.

There are two ways to view Orcombe Point. Firstl ytake the cliff path from the end of Exmouth beach and you will reach the Geoneedle, which is made from different rocks from various parts of the Jurassic Coast. This identifies the western end of the Jurassic coast. Secondly you can walk along the beach at low tide and view it upwards. We did both ways and enjoyed each as it gives a different aspect.

It is located bout a 15 minute walk from the life boat station at the eatern end of Exmouth sea front. At low tide you can walk along the sands where you will get the best view of Orcombe Point which is where the Jurassic Coast commences. Recommended but watch the tide.

Orcombe Point is situated at the western end start point of the Jurassic Coast. We thought the best view was from the beach. It located near the end of the Exmouth main beach, but it can be reachrd by walking alongnthevsand from Sandy Bay. It is only accessible at low tide. Alternatively it can be seen by walking along the cliff top footpath. It is something that we thought was worthwhile doing.

The far end of Exmouth seafront and the start of the coastal walk out to the Geoneedle and the Sandy Beach beyond.

What a superb place, we walked along the seafront from our hotel which was about 1.5-2 miles and found a great small cafe just below the point which was open in January. Very impressed with the whole area and Exmouth was very clean.

One of the best British beaches, fantastic views, amazing walks. The wooden and metal walk from cliffs to beach is quaint and lovely. When tide is out walk down it to a beautiful secluded area.

An easy walk along the coastal path gives you excellent views across the bay and Exmouth. You can do a round trip along the beach to Devon Cliffs holiday park and return to Exmouth along the coastal path to reach Orcombe point. Just be aware that you could be cut off by a rising tide at the Exmouth end of the beach so check the tide table before starting off.

The Geoneedle on Orcombe Point is made up of rocks from the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic eras, matching the rocks of the cliffs. When you reach it, you just look at it for a few minutes (and the smashing view from the cliff tops) then walk back. I really enjoy it but don't expect there to be too much at the end. I can walk the distance and back in about an hour and half. Nowhere is too steep. I like to walk there via the cliff path and then go down the ladder to the beach, afterwards, and walk back along the beach. If you do that, you get a circular walk with lots of different features.
