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.

Walked along the beach and then up to Orcombe point. Not too strenuous but well worth the walk up as the views are brilliant. Several photographers were up there on the day. The red rock is quite a sight on that area.

We love this clifftop walk from Exmouth to Orcombe Point and high on the cliff tops you get the most stunning veiws of the sea and surrounding coastline. One of my best walks.

I was on a walking weekend with a rambling group. We walked from our hotel in Exmouth to Sidmouth. Orcombe Point was an excellent coffee stop with lovely views.

This is a pleasant walk, but not so nice as it used to be as the see front is being developed well supposed to be, but put this to one side and a nice walk all in all

Enjoyed the coastal path walk from Exmouth to Budleigh (despite the weather!). Good views from Orcombe Point. Pathway very good, but very hilly and some parts not accessible for all. Good to be able to use Sandy Bay Haven caravan park halfway for a pit...More

A lovely leisurely walk along the seafront or beach. Flat so great for wheelchairs etc. Lovely sandy beach with rockpools. The Orcombe Point is lovely to sit under the sandstone cliffs.
