Overview
More
A wheelchair-friendly 1 mile walk on the South West Path around Paignton's Roundham Head, the hub of the town's sixteenth-century fishing industry. The headland's rocky red layered cliffs are topped with pines and sycamores. There are extensive views, northwards across Tor Bay and over Goodrington Sands to Brixham in the south. On a good day you can even see across Lyme Bay to Portland.

Magical views over Torbay. On a sunny evening there is none better in the whole country. From the views to Brixham to the views over to Torquay it is a magical place to sit and ponder.

Well worth the walk down the cliff face and at night lit in a glorious mix of colours. Considering the problems over the winter very well maintained and a credit to whomsoever maintains it.

Love the walk here and was lucky enough to see pods of Dolphins swim past a few years ago. A great area for dog walking or even a cycle ride. Beautiful views across to Torquay and Brixham.
