Leave the charming village of Noss Mayo and make your way along higher and more challenging coastal cliffs, perhaps getting a glimpse of dolphins, occasional whales or seals from the lookout above Warren Beach.
When you reach the River Erme you will either need to wade across within an hour either side of low tide, or take the alternative inland walk or taxi transfer around the valley. After some steep climbing to the high viewpoints near Westcombe Beach you will descend past Ayrmer Cove to Bigbury-on-Sea, with stunning views across to Burgh Island.
Alternative route — The alternative walking route round the Erme estuary is described in the guidebook. This is an additional distance of 8 miles/14km.
