The coast line around Prawle must be amongst the most beautiful and spectacular in the south west, and is the southernmost point in Devon.
Prawle Point is a bird watchers paradise. As it is so southerly, migrant birds arrive here first in the spring and gather here for their long flights in the autumn. Buzzards, ravens and hawks abound and Prawle Point is a location for the rare Cirl Bunting. A nightingale has even been heard right in the car park! Prawle Point is perfect for those who like walking and are interested in nature.
The whole of the coastline from Mill Bay at Portlemouth to Start Point is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, most of it is owned by the National Trust. The coast is quite rocky, though there are several coves with pebble beaches close by where you can swim. These can be reached along the South Devon coastal path. A visit to Prawle Point takes you to one of the most picturesque points on our coast - particularly if you watch the sun set on a clear day.
The coast line around Prawle must be amongst the most beautiful and spectacular in the south west. The climate is exceptionally mild and warm.
