Walk - Teignmouth Seafront
1.8 miles (2.9 km)
Eastcliffe Car Park, Dawlish Road TQ14 8TE Eastcliffe Car Park
Easy - Apart from a small incline at the start and end, the walk is on flat well surfaced pavements. The extension to Sprey Point can be hazardous during and after wet or windy weather.
A gentle flat walk along wide pavements on the traditional promenade at Teignmouth. Park at Eastcliffe Car Park (fee payable). Pass the pier (accessible to all) and view the village of Shaldon across the river mouth. (A Ferry to Shaldon welcomes passengers with dogs or pushchairs) There are plenty of seats along the whole of the walk. Toilets and refreshments are readily available.
This walk of less than one mile can be extended in dry, calm weather along the sea wall beside the railway line up to Sprey Point and towards Dawlish (the distance inlcudes this extended section). Do not attempt this extended part of the walk in wet or stormy weather. The surface becomes slippery and there are no railings protecting the walker from a 5 metre drop down to the beach or the sea.
