This is a full loop of Dawlish Warren - there and back again!

Much of this walk is on sand and can be hard going - make sure you are well prepared, have water and appropriate clothing/footwear. 

Check all site notices for up to date information and take particular note of the state of the tide to safely time your walk. It is possible that at high tides you may not be able to walk along (or return by) the beach and you will need to return by an inland route.
