Take the Place Ferry from St Mawes and you can walk to St Anthony Head from there or park at the National trust car park. Well worth doing - an enjoyable walk.

Going here is a must if you like to see the sea, although you can't directly visit the beach. Unfortunately as the lighthouse is currently still in use, you can't visit it or go inside but you can make it very close to the structure...More

The path is uneven and slightly hilly in parts and you do have a few hundred yards of double bush path about a quarter way around, but the woodland start, the creek side middle and the sea cliff then beach end is the perfect mix...More
