This is a lovely cliff top walk starting at the car park near Fairlight Coastguard Station (CS). Simply walk down the track to the CS, turn right onto the well marked coastal path and enjoy the views. If in doubt of the route, keep the sea to your left. To return, simply follow the outward route. And don’t forget, if you only do one way you’ll need some form of transport to get back to Fairlight if you park there!
There are no toilets on route but plenty of bushes!
Dogs welcome under strict control – livestock
No fires or camping
