Walk Details

This #CornwallDevonWalk starts in Salcombe, famous worldwide for its Devonshire ice cream. The wide harbour and array of beautiful holiday homes and hotels make this a popular place for sailing and holidaying.

To get to the start of our walk you will need to take the Ferry from Salcombe landing to East Portlemouth, they leave every half an hour and take around twenty minutes. During your boat trip you will have excellent views of the Kingsbridge estuary and the beautiful Salcombe rising up from the river.

Once you’re safely across the river our route follows the path out of Salcombe Harbour towards the open sea. You will pass the sandy Mill Bay and Sunny Cove, aptly named since Salcombe sees some of the highest levels of sunshine in the country.

This journey makes use of the famous South West Coast path, following the Estuary to the headland and leading you to the open sea. The walk then hug the coast, taking in the Pigs Nose, Gammon head and finally Prawle Point, which is the southern most point in all of Devon.

This is not a circular route, and there aren’t any buses from East Prawle ,where this walk ends, back to Salcombe. This means you will need to walk back the way you came. Please bear in mind that the Ferry from Portlemouth to Salcombe stops running after 5:40, so make sure you factor that into your walk.
