Even in bad weather you can enjoy this walk, when the waves are smashing against the rocks sending surf high over the colourful beach huts at the foot of the cliff.

Location/Facts:

The Roundham peninsula and headland rocks were laid down between 280 and 230 million years ago when this area was a desert. This era is often referred to as the Permian Period and the red sandstones of Roundham are the compacted particles of sand and other rocky material from that desert age.

During the summer months you can enjoy a game of mini golf here on the 9 hole Pitch & Putt course.
