This moderate 5.4 mile circular walk goes from Exmouth Station out to Littleham Cross, then through countryside out to the South West Coast Path. Passing Orcombe Point and the Geoneedle the walk leads back along the cliff top and past historic buildings in The Beacon.

I was on a walking weekend with a rambling group. We walked from our hotel in Exmouth to Sidmouth. Orcombe Point was an excellent coffee stop with lovely views.

A lovely leisurely walk along the seafront or beach. Flat so great for wheelchairs etc. Lovely sandy beach with rockpools. The Orcombe Point is lovely to sit under the sandstone cliffs.

Beautiful vistas in all directions, we have the benefit of sea and estuary views. Unspoilt Exmouth seafront has changed little over the years.
