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.

Alternative routes — There is an alternative walking route around the Cattewater which is the official route of the SWCP. This is described in the guidebook.

Another alternative walking route round the Yealm estuary is described in the guidebook. This is an additional distance of 9 miles/14.5km. Public transport options are also available.
