Walk - Dizzard Point
5.0 miles (8.0 km)
Millook Beach - EX23 0DQ Millook Beach
Moderate - Inland paths that may be wet and muddy, with streams to cross, and the Coast Path travels along the top of cliffs that may be unstable. There are some stretches of ascent and descent, but nothing prolonged or steep.
An inspirational walk through some of Britain's oldest woodland, dating back to prehistoric times at Dizzard Point. Rare lichens thrive in the pure air and the hay meadows alongside Millook Water are full of wildflowers and butterflies. On the shoreline the cliffs are dramatically folded in chevrons, the remnants of an ancient mountain range which was shunted into spectacular formations when Devon and Cornwall collided with France 320 million years ago. Look out for otters in the stream.
