This route runs along the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay, with its numerous coves and long sandy beach dotted with life-filled rock pools. There’s also a large area of parkland directly behind the beach. Access: The car park leads straight on to the long level promenade, access to the beach however is not easy, via steps with handrails. There are disabled toilet facilities Dogs are sadly banned during the summer season. However, there is a dog exercise area on the green behind the beach, but do note that your furry friend must be kept on a lead. The route takes you to the Brixham Fish Market, which is credited with being one of the birthplaces of trawling due to its strong fishing tradition dating back to the 14th century. In the 19th century it is said that Brixham had 270 sail operated decked trawlers employing over 1500 seamen making it “the largest fishery in England”. Nowadays, Brixham can claim to be England’s largest fish market by value of fish sold, which in 2017 was over £40,000,000. Usually, tours are offered, which are highly recommended if you are interested in learning and discovering more. The tour costs £20 and includes breakfast and a donation to the Fishermen’s Mission.

fantastic walk although the route to Brixham is more of a moderate to hard.... definitely not an easy route although the returning route is alot easier. about 1km of this route is on a busy country road which made me feel uncomfortable. apart from that we had a lovely walk and lunch in Brixham.

Bring walking shoes and prepare for a few climbs and descents. A short stretch of country lane without pavement to navigate, but not too bad. Take your time and it’s a nice walk.
