Plymouth to Exmouth is a great walk taking you first through the area of Devon known as South Hams. This area consists of slate cliffs, sometimes quite rugged, cut through by drowned mouths of wooded river valleys.
The second stretch from Dartmouth to Teignmouth is quite different with mostly low red sandstone cliffs. It is known as the Riviera and includes the tourist towns of Torquay and Teignmouth.
