From Wembury Point you are treated to panoramic views out across Wembury Bay. On the far side of the Tamar, to your right, if you visit the information point at Wembury Point, you can see Rame Head in Cornwall. To your left are Gara Point and the mouth of the Yealm estuary.
But it is the Great Mewstone which dominates the view. This small rocky island stands about half a mile out from Wembury Point and is the largest offshore island for many miles along the South Devon coast. The Great Mewstone gets its name from the old English name for the herring gull and these, along with many other birds, are the only inhabitants on the island these days. It is owned by the National Trust and, as there is no public access, it is rich in wildlife and an important conservation area.
