This walk can be easily split into two shorter walks or shortened at a number of signposted points en route. The full version combines what is probably the finest and most spectacular section of coast in North Devon. Whilst it is quite strenuous, we fully recommend the route, which also includes some inland walking on the much shorter return leg. The views along the way will include Lundy Island, Baggy Point, Woolacombe Sands and Warren, South Wales, etc. You will also pass a number of beaches, including one famed for its fossils and another named Grunta Beach, where a ship full of pigs once foundered. It is said that one escaped capture for several months and managed to live in the wild. Morte Point and Bull Point have some fantastic reefs and boulders which resemble huge fangs. At Bull Point there is a lighthouse and one possible way to shorten the route is to use its access road.

Many thanks to Ian for this very encouraging comment and for the helpful additions regarding Waywarks 8 and 9. Anne and Brian Sandland,

A superb walk though quite strenuous at times - there didn't seem to be as many 'downs' as 'ups'! The views are fabulous. I was lucky enough to see a family of seals on the rocks below the path just after point 2. Mr & Mrs Seal with their son Lou. Wouldn't you think that parents would think more before naming their children? At point 8 the 'another signposted footpath' is signed to 'Twitchen'. The path through the caravan park at point 9 is not easy to see but if you think that you probably shouldn't go 'that' way then that's the way that you probably should! - diagonally left between caravans. Other than that the route is VERY easy to follow and well worth the effort.
