Distance: 1.5 – 2.5 miles depending upon route
Starting Point: Torcross Memorial car park TQ7 2QW
Local pub – Start Bay Inn
From Slapton Sands, you can walk along the beach towards Torcross Sands. After a short walk you will see Start Bay Inn on your left – right on the beach. Scramble up… cross the road and you will find yourselves in the Torcross Memorial car park – the start of your walk. The fresh water Slapton Ley Nature Reserve is only separated by road from the salty sea.
There are a number of walking routes that navigate Slapton Ley, including a family trail that takes under an hour, perfect for little legs! If you’re after something a little more strenuous, you can always continue through the countryside to Slapton village and for a longer extension, head back to Slapton Sands beach.
