A bracing, undulating January walk with the most spectacular views, panoramic 360 degrees scenery and dramatic seas. In some sections the steep slopes and steps would be challenging to the unfit but some do have alternative routes that are slightly easier.

Large fishing community still working hard in these seas. Not easy to get down on the beach unless your rock climbing. The sights are amazing . Even in April the sea was crashing against the cliffs creating erosion.

I have no idea how much this has changed as it is still Wild, rugged, a bit dangerous in some weather, steep, uneven BUT wonderful. You are part of the sea and the struggle here. Loved it. Not wheelchair friendly. Parking is a big problem

Amazing views with wonder sounds of the sea. Monument to Marconi on the route to Poldhu Cove. Evocative cries of seabirds and Cormorants fishing in the tranquil waters.

We parked at the honesty car park & did the short walk to Mullion Cove. What a magic, atmospheric place it is. You can picture life here 500 years ago. Worth a detour.

The most amazing walk. Not too difficult. Out of season not many places to eat/drink. I would advise that you get to Million on the bus then walk back to Porthleven. Eat and drink at the Atlantic Inn pub.

Some good ideas from the other posters. In this area one of my favorite walks is The Lizard Point walk (find it on our website) - great views and you'll often see Choughs. Although its 4 miles - it's relatively flat and can... More
