    This stage of the Coast Path is packed with wild charm and beautiful scenery.

    After some challenging hikes recently, you will find this stage to be a little more easy-going, albeit with some challenging ascents to contend with.

    From the picturesque beach at Combe Martin, the trail undulates through patchwork fields and woodlands, along cliff tops, and passes through the Hillsborough nature reserve, which is rich with wildlife and boasts wonderful views over the coastline.

    Following some strenuous ascents and descents, you eventually reach Barricane Beach; a picturesque cove that is famous for exotic sea shells and a wonderful place to relax and swim.

    From the beach, it is only a short step to the seaside resort of Woolacombe, which has a range of accommodation, places to eat and drink, as well as shops and other attractions.
