Start Point Walk

Key Information

S W Coast Path, Kingsbridge TQ7, UK
Open All Year


A short 1.3m easy walk from Start Point Car Park to Start Point and the Lighthouse – part of the South West Coast Path.

Start Point is the most southerly tip of Devon, with stunning coastal scenery across Start Bay and lots of wildlife to spot, including seabirds and the odd seal.

See the remains of Hallsands Village, wrecked by storms on 1917, the Day Mark Tower on the Dart Estuary, and on a clear day, you can see along the coastline to the Isle of Portland.

This short walk takes you from the Start Point Car Park down to the Start Point Lighthouse, built in 1836 to protect the ships sailing around this coastline. There is a steady descent down the old lighthouse road to the headland. It is suitable for many mobility scooters, and push chairs.

As you exit the Start Point Car Park – follow the path towards the Lighthouse.
