Did this walk today. Walked to South Sands first and broke off walk to catch the ferry over to Salcombe. After we got back we carried on with the trail. Such a scenic route. Some parts of the trail were tricky to walk over and was happy I had walking boots on. High up in places and path near the edge. Trail was up and down, but I liked the change. We walked this on a beautifully clear and sunny day and it couldn't have been better. Not sure, personally, I would walk this route in damp or breezy conditions.
