A spectacular stretch of coastline boasting dramatic cliffs
A great beach, and more: some of the best rock pools in the country, good surfing, masses of wildlife and views of the distinctive island - the Great Mewstone. Wembury is a great starting point for lovely inland and coastal walks to Wembury Woods and the Yealm Estuary, and around Wembury Point. Finish your trip with a slice of Gemma and Jennifer's home-made cake in the Old Mill Café.
Wembury Marine Centre runs regular rock pool rambles for children during the school holidays. Up for an adventure? Wembury is also a great place for surfing, kayaking and snorkelling. If you want to go further afield why not take the passenger ferry across to the pretty riverside village of Noss Mayo or Newton Ferrers and enjoy a pint in one of the local pubs.
A great time to visit
This is a great time of year to visit the woods, as the leaves turn a kaleidoscope of colour from green to yellow to red. Spot an amazing variety of fungi clinging to fallen wood and growing grassy glades.
Look out for signs of small mammals, insects and birds foraging for food; nuts, berries and seeds.
Try out the new family trail at Wembury Point. Play detective and discover five boxes hidden around the headland. Each one contains a fun thing to do.
The trail will take between 30 minutes and one hour depending on whether you do the short option (tarmac path) or the longer loop. Free. Let us know how you got on.
