Wembury Shoreline Walk

Wembury Beach, Wembury, Devon (Map)

With stunning views across the sea and to the Great Mewstone, this moderate, 2 mile walk is a great opportunity to investigate the Wembury shoreline for a glimpse into the hidden treasures of the sea.

This section of coast is part of a Voluntary Marine Conservation Area and is internationally known for its rich diversity of marine life. Delve into the shallow waters of the rockpools and see what you can find. See if you can find limpets, sea anemones, crabs and starfish. Dogs are allowed on Wembury Beach from 1st October – 30th April.

Directions

  • From Wembury Beach car park, walk down onto the beach and follow the path along the coast to the west.
  • Midway through the walk, look out for the slipway to your right. This will allow you to access the beach for the remainder of the walk.
  • Once you’ve dropped on to the beach, the path crosses some rocky outcrops, be sure to watch your footing. 
  • When you reach the rocky section of the beach you’ll stumble across shallow pools. These rockpools are home to some colourful marine life, so get ready to spend plenty of time investigating.
  • Follow the bottom of the cliffs for flatter ground and a slightly easier walk as you edge closer to your starting point. Be aware of debris falling from above.
  • Finish your walk back at Wembury Beach.
