Coastal Walks



Ansteys Cove is situated on the coastal walk between Torquay and Babbacombe, and proves a popular spot for lunch or light refreshments along the way.


Bishops walk was recently voted among the top fifty walks in the country and begins from Ansteys cove. Opposite the car park is a sign for the coastal footpath. This takes you around blackhead through wooded hillsides with stunning viewpoints along the way. The path reaches Marine Drive, where you can turn right through Ilsham Valley and return to Ansteys Cove ( approx 1 hour round trip ), or turn left and continue around Hopes Nose, towards Thatcher point and Meadfoot beach.


Free maps are available from tourist information or at Ansteys Cove cafe.
