    South Devon's best coastal pub walks

    The lovely pubs along the South Devon coast complement the walking on this superlative stretch of the South West Coast Path. Each walk incorporates a stretch of the South West Coast Path, and starts and finishes close to a great pub. Combined, they cover the very best stretches of South Devon's coastline, one of great natural beauty and variety. The pub walks are ordered from west to east, starting at Noss Mayo on the Yealm estuary and finishing at Branscombe, near Beer. All the pubs are situated either right on the coast or a short distance inland — some in coves and harbours, others almost on the sand — and the majority are open all day. With the pubs open all year and the walking good in all seasons, the South Devon Coast is quite rightly a year-round destination.
