Take the ferry across the Cattewater from the pontoon at the Barbican to Mount Batten Point. Experience the peacefulness and isolation that this section of the path offers.
After passing Wembury Point the path is easy to follow along low cliffs to Wembury Beach and onwards to Warren Point. From here you will cross the Yealm by ferry (seasonal) to the tiny settlement of Noss Mayo, your stop for the night.
