Overview

A long walk on the South West Coast Path, on mostly level terrain, although the route becomes more challenging and rugged after Gun Point. The dramatic coastline around Stepper Point includes an enormous collapsed sea cave at Roundhole Point.

Lovely, easy walk along the coast path, and also along the enormous beach (at low tide). Views are lovely as you approach Hawker's Cove, where there is also a tea shop/cafe. The walk just from Padstow to Hawker's Cove and then back along the same...More

After visiting Padstow I walked back along the coast to Newquay. The scenery was stunning and a must for coastal walkers

You can have a long walk on this beach as it is very wide. The car park is beside the beach and from here you can view all the beach.

The path is so well trodden that you don't need to follow a map, the scenery you will see is well worth the track and there are various footpaths off the coast path to shorten the trail if you need to. A great way of...More
