Walk - Wembury & Staddiscombe
7.7 miles (12.4 km)
Wembury Beach Car Park - PL9 0HP Wembury Beach Car Park
Moderate - Coastal path and good inland footpaths, with some surfaced roads.
A circular route around Wembury and Bovisand, returning via footpaths and lanes inland. With a history of farming dating back many centuries, and a church whose site dates back to Saxon times, the area has always played a key role in coastal defence, and there are many traces of past military activity dotted around the landscape. Children will love the marine centre and the rockpools at Wembury, and the shipping activity on the Plymouth Sound. A good walk in spring, when celandines and violets brighten the path, stonechats call from the gorse bushes and fulmars nest on the cliffs among the clumps of pink-flowered thrift.
