If you need fresh air, a fabulous view and a bracing but not difficult walk, Exmouth seafront is for you. You can start at The Point, the western end is the beach, next to the marina, and set off for 30-40 minutes of bliss. Just...More

Having said that its very bracing for outdoors people or pooches. A nice walk through to budleigh salterton a pint or two in the feathers and a bus back to exmouth. Or continue to walk back to exmouth via the cycle path
