Although the rocks at Dawlish are not very extensive they are worth a visit particularly as access is easy and it is well served with facilities (cafe, toilets) especially in summer. After exploring the rocks you can swim in safety from Coryton Cove beach. It has an extensive and varied algae cover with a number of interesting overhangs that hide strawberry anemones, cowries, sponges and many more. The seawall is crowded with limpets, beadlet anemones, barnacles and pacific oysters. See the poster on page 2.
Access to Dawlish Rocks is via the promenade on the Teignmouth side of the railway station and down the steps half way along. If coming by car then park in Coronation Avenue on the left as you enter Dawlish from Teignmouth. Walk down the winding paths through Lea Mount on the seaward side of the A379.
