Bolt Tail is the site of an Iron Age promontory fort, although little evidence now remains of this structure, it occupied a classic promontory defended from inland by a linear earthwork at some 60 metres above sea level.
It offers views to Bantham Beach and Burgh Island. On a day with good visibility it is possible to see far down the coast into Cornwall, as far as Dodman Point. Under very exceptional atmospheric conditions the Lizard Point in Cornwall is visible from Bolt Tail.
