Plymouth walks

The area around Plymouth is full of perfect local walks. With sandy beaches and wonderful woods, why not take a look?

Looking towards Heybrook bay from Wembury Point

Wembury Beach to Heybrook Bay walk

A moderate walk up from the bay passing fields and the former HMS Cambridge site, looping back around from Heybrook bay to take in the views of the Mewstone.

The dramatic rocks and cliffs at Ayrmer Cove

Short walk around Ayrmer Cove

Follow this gentle 1 mile walk along farmland with impressive views of Bigbury and Burgh Island (made famous by Agatha Christie's 'Then there were none'). This linear route finishes just above Ayrmer Cove and a well placed bench to stop and rest.

You can find weathered orthostats at Prawle Point

Prawle Point walk

This walk is full of drama: heart thumping cliff-top climbs, with rocky raised beaches below. Look out for the sunken Demetrios below Signalhouse Point and don't miss the ancient boundary stones that dot the landscape. Call in at the Coastwatch visitor centre to find out more about this wild and beautiful landscape.

Looking towards the shelter on the footpath in Polperro

Chapel Cliff walk

Look out for caves, the old net loft and the Polperro allotments on this moderately challenging coastal walk in Cornwall. This is a nice extension to your day out in Polperro.
