Coastal Walks

Kents Cavern is sat near some amazing coastal areas, with breath-taking scenery, dramatic drops and hidden coves. Listed below are some of the best places in the local area we think you should visit.

UNESCO GEOPARK COASTAL WALK

You can learn all about our local geology on one fantastic walk. Discover 400-million-year-old limestone layers, once part of a mountain range, becoming a vast desert land, to raised Ice Age beaches and eventually gold infused rock (you might even find some). Finish your walk at Kents Cavern during the prehistoric period.

Walking conditions: Coastal path, rocky with steep sections along public footpaths. Detailed Step-by-step instructions from the BBC website - Click here

BABBACOMBE COVES AND CLIFFS

This walk will take you across some stunning views and eventually into the picturesque Babbacombe village in Torquay. You may even want to take a ride on the famously restored Babbacombe Cliff railway. The walk begins at Anstey's cove opposite Kents Cavern, why not take a cave tour first?
