Leaving Salcombe you will take the ferry to East Portlemouth. From here pass Pig’s Nose, Ham Stone and Gammon Point enroute to Prawle Point, meaning “lookout hill”, and enjoy the views from the most southerly point in Devon. Heading on towards Start Point and its Lighthouse, the path then levels out towards the waterside village of Torcross, your stop for the evening.
