Little Oddicombe Beach Closure
Update - Spring 2014
Following the rockfalls last year at Little Oddicombe, we would remind people to avoid the area affected by the landslips. We have been advised by a geologist that further activity can be expected and therefore this area will remain closed for the forseeable future. It is important that members of the public heed the warnings signs.
Nestled at the bottom of red sandstone cliffs Oddicombe beach is a sheltered haven for those looking for a relaxing day out.
This attractive stretch of shingle beach is perfect for simply hiring a deck chair, lying back and enjoying the spectacular views. For a bit more action there is a choice of water sports.
Away from the beach, a steep walk to the cliff top is well rewarded with magnificent views across the bay. For those who want the breathtaking views without losing breath, there’s access to the cliff top via the Babbacombe Cliff Railway
