South West Coast Path - Beesands and Hallsands, Dog-friendly Walk

Children particularly will love this stroll past the 'Village that Fell into the Sea'. It is easy to understand the massive power of the ocean on a windy day here, when the waves crash on the rocks, dashing spray high in the air, and there is the muted roar of the shingle being dragged back and forth on the seabed. 'Hallsands looks as if it properly belonged to the sea,' wrote James Fairweather in his 1884 Guide to Salcombe, 'and had only been borrowed from it for a time.' Within 30 years the sea had claimed the village back again – with some help from local dredgers. The route follows a number of ancient lanes and it may be wet or muddy in places, so wear good footwear.

Difficulty: moderate
Length: 3.5 miles
