Notice: The Dorset Local Resilience Forum is advising residents and visitors to West Dorset to avoid cliffs and beaches with a cliff backdrop, following a significant landslide in 2012 at Burton Bradstock. Please also follow advice and closure information on signs along the South West Coast Path and connecting paths.
The spectacular coastline between Exmouth and Branscombe
East Devon's coastline forms part of the stunning Jurassic Coast; England's first natural World Heritage Site.
Geoneedle, Orcombe Point, is a five metre high stone sculpture which represents all the rocks found in the cliffs of the Jurassic Coast and marks the westerly extent of the World Heritage Site.
You will also find sandy beaches perfect for family activities at Orcombe Point.
On Salcombe Hill take in the views over Sidmouth and as far away as Portland Bill in Dorset. In summer the area is filled with wildflowers, like fox gloves and buttercups, which in turn attract an array of butterflies.
Red sandstone cliffs rise high above the picturesque Salcombe Regis Valley. Find your way to Salcombe's pebble beach by the footpath through the valley bottom, to Salcombe Mouth.
Located between Sidmouth and Seaton, the isolated pebble beach of Weston Mouth is a short walk to the cliffs of Dunscombe and the secluded valley of Lincombe, which is excellent for wild flowers and butterflies.
Explore the traditional village of Branscombe, set deep in a valley, where the National Trust has an information centre, working forge, mill and an old bakery tea-room.
