Begin the day by crossing the Dartmouth Harbour from where you'll swing around the coast on a fairly challenging day's walking. Pass several caves and man-made points of interest as you continue north to your final destination of Brixham.

Take your final river crossing as you board the ferry across the River Dart to Kingswear. Climb through wooded slopes covered in Monterey Pines to Froward Point where you can see the remains of WWII defences. Moving on to Pudcombe Cove you will be rewarded with yet more views of the cliffs dropping down to the white-capped seas below. Passing Kingswear Castle and on to Sharkham Point you will encounter one of the most challenging sections of the South Devon path.

Reaching the limestone Peninsula of Berry Head you will follow high cliff paths past the lighthouse, before descending into the busy fishing port of Brixham. Wander Brixham’s winding streets and arcades before celebrating the end of your walk with a meal of freshly caught seafood in a quayside restaurant.
