This moderate 5.4 mile circular walk goes from Exmouth Station out to Littleham Cross, then through countryside out to the South West Coast Path. Passing Orcombe Point and the Geoneedle the walk leads back along the cliff top and past historic buildings in The Beacon.

Typical seaside promenade walk with the usual amenities, golden sands and a gentle climb to the viewpoint at the end.

The flat walk along Exmouth sea front on a clear sunny day is a leisurely stroll . This leaves you the energy for the steep path up to the Geoneedle which marks the start of the fabulous Jurassic Coast. From there you have fabulous views...More

A not too demanding walk to the geoneedle on this heritage coastline. Take the coastal path up and return via beach. The views are wonderful and plenty of seats to while away the time.

A great walk. The views from Orcombe across the Exmouth Beach are fabulous. Go to Rodney Point down the steps and see the water crashing into the rocks. Very exhilarating.

The walk takes about 45 minutes, thats taking it easy and yes you could take a pram. As you get to the end of the walk nearest exmouth you need to take the left hand path, closest to the sea as this is wider and not so... More
