Behind the Sea Wall and Railway line at Coryton's Cove are Cliffs with conspicuous honeycombe weathering
(caused by wind and salt-laiden air ).
The Permian Age Cliffs are formed from Breccias and Cross - Bedded Sandstones
( each new angle indicating a change in the wind direction when the beds where layed down ).
The Aeolian ( wind deposited ) Sandstone Beds dip at about 10 degrees (caused by tectonic forces)
The breccias are of a quartzite-porphyry-aureole-feldspar type
Coryton's Cove can be reached from the Southern end of the Beach at Dawlish.
