Overview

A 3 mile moderate walk along part of the South West Coast Path National Trail passing through an enchanted landscape of rocky spires and jumbled pinnacles to the mouth of the Salcombe estuary, with inspiring views in all directions, this is a coastal walk guaranteed to lift the spirits.

It is 1.8 miles to Bold Head via North Sands. A lovely walk, very do-able, with a couple of little heads to keep you on your toes. Also a very good run. Do it.

Beautiful walk and stunning views. The colour of the water feels like you could be on the Mediterranean!

We walked here on Easter Saturday so it was quite busy. The recent wet weather made some sections very muddy and slippy but with decent boots no problem. There is a bit of up and down but not too exacting. Lovely views along the way....More

What a lovely walk! The walk from Salcombe town centre has a steep hill from North Sands and then up to the top of the headland but the views are worth it. Coming back along the coast path made it a nice circular walk. Decent...More

We passed a number of people with dogs. It is very steep and you are walking along cliffs so if your dog comes when you call, it will be fine and fun. If we weren’t overseas travellers, I definitely would take my dog.
