A varied walk taking in both sides of the Rame peninsula - from the shelter of Plymouth Sound, around rugged Rame Head to the vast sandy sweep of Whitsand Bay. Children will love the chapel, where the Armade was first spotted, and the Napoleonic fort at Polhawn, as well as the remains of the Iron Age promontory. Rame Head is a good place in spring and autumn, when migrant birds to be spotted include gannets, divers and skuas on the water, with harriers and sometimes even honey buzzards hunting the warblers and swallows gathering ready to leave.
This walk is particularly good for dogs as it passes a beach and pubs where dogs are welcome. Have a look at our Top Dog Walks on the South West Coast Path for more dog friendly beaches and pubs.
Fairly level and easy from Cawsand to Rame Head, but with some steep descents and climbs between Rame Head and Whitsand Bay.
Several pubs in Kingsand and Cawsand and two cafés near to the finishing point.
Near to the start of the walk in Kingsand the Rising Sun is recommended by users of www.doggiepubs.org.uk as serving good food and being dog-friendly.
