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.

The views are lovely. The walk is relatively easy with footpaths being WELL kept. There are benches to sit and relax and plenty of information points.

You can just do a circular from Exmouth to Orcombe Point (which marks the Westerly end to the Jurassic coastline) or you if you prefer to walk a bit further then a walk all the way to Budleigh Salterton is recommended. There are regular buses...More

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.
