Snapes Point, Salcombe, Devon
Snapes Point is a promontory that juts out into the Salcombe-Kingsbridge estuary on the South Devon coast. The views, as you can imagine, are astounding, especially when the tide is out and the beaches along the East Portlemouth side of the estuary are joined up to form a sweeping arc of golden sands; when the sun is high in the sky you can look down on the sparkling waters where the boats look like little models and the backdrop of the harbour and Salcombe climbing up the hillside is picture perfect. Everybody’s dream of an English holiday by the coast.
You can walk to Snapes Point along the South West Coast Path from wherever you like, but if you want to see it the easy way, you can drive up to the car park and from there follow a walking trail for about a mile to the headland. The terrain is generally easy going but there are a few steps so it’s not ideal for those with mobility issues. At the top there are grassy paths to explore, plenty of wildlife to spot and if you choose well you’ll find the perfect place for a picnic.
