Walk - Blackpool Sands & Strete
3.4 miles (5.5 km)
Blackpool Sands - TQ6 0RG Blackpool Sands
Moderate - Some stretches of steep ascent and descent, and paths through the fields may be muddy.
A short walk starting from Blackpool Sands, where turquoise water laps on a soft shoreline below high wooded cliffs, and full beach facilities in season make it an ideal place to spend the rest of the day. The first part of the route follows quiet country lanes high above the beach, giving tremendous views from Start Point, Torcross and Slapton Ley to the south right across to the Daymark at Froward Point in the north. For an easier walk take the bus to Strete and walk back along the Coast Path, following the walk from 4.
