The promenade in the north Devon town of Ilfracombe has been closed because of a landslide.
Severe weather on Saturday night is thought to have caused the landslide, which happened at about 19:00 GMT near the town's Landmark Theatre.
Part of a concrete wall was brought down, closing the car park. Police said no-one was injured.
The promenade will not reopen until it has been inspected by council highways staff and the debris cleared.
Strong winds also brought down a number of trees on Saturday and a Met Office yellow "be prepared" alert for heavy rain and gale-force winds will remain in force for Devon and Cornwall until 11:00 GMT on Monday.
