Fun at Froward

We set off to explore a section of the coastpath we'd never visited before, between Kingswear and Brixham. It was an idyllic English summer's day; at the top of the headland the corn swayed like water as we walked through the fields. We got to the edge near Froward Point and found the most stunning craggy cliffs with turquoise water below. The sea was calm and we leapt in off the rocks. The water was so clear, I swear I could see plankton...we definitely saw crabs and a starfish below. There were channels and even intriguing rocky islands to explore, with masses of noisy seabirds including cormorants, shags and terns.

we parked in the car park to the West of Coleton Farm and walked due south down the lane to the coastpath. We then walked east to Outer Froward Point and scrambled down from there - the path isn't easy to find. OS grid ref for Outer Froward Point is SX 910498. Hope this helps.
