Visit Start Point 

Start Point in South Devon is one of the most exposed peninsulas on the English Coast, running sharply almost a mile into the sea on the South side of Start Bay near Dartmouth.

Start Point Lighthouse at the end of the headland, has guided vessels in passage along the English Channel for over 150 years.

The walk up to Start Point Lighthouse is one of the best coastal walks in South Devon, along the South West Coast Path. The dramatic cliffs and stunning coastal landscape is breathtaking - and can be done as a short walk or part of a longer trek across the Coast Path.  

Extend your walk towards Beesands and Torcross, or East Prawle and Salcombe - you may even see seals or dolphins out at sea - and a host of sea birds and birds of prey.
