Walk - Bay Esplanade Hotel - Roundham Head
1.1 miles (1.8 km)
Esplanade Hotel, SandsRoad, Paignton Esplanade Hotel, SandsRoad, Paignton
A wheelchair-friendly walk around Paignton's Roundham Head, the hub of the town's sixteenth-century fishing industry. The headland's rocky red layered cliffs are topped with pines and sycamores, and there are extensive views, across Tor Bay to Torquay to the north and over Goodrington Sands to Brixham in the south. On a good day you can even see across Lyme Bay to Portland; but this is an equally captivating walk in poor weather, when the waves are dashed against the rocks and send plumes of surf high over the colourful line of beach huts at the foot of the cliff. This is a dog friendly walk.
