Beautiful coastal walk along the cliff tops . Uneven and narrow at some points along the way - but by no means difficult . The views are amazing. Stopped for cold drink in Swanpool before heading back

Great Walk with lovely views , does have steep steps in places but not too bad , Lots of little beaches to explore on the way and you can have a lovely stop off at Swanpool cafe before your return journey. Spot on

Beautiful coastal views, about 1 1/2 hours to walk there and back. Quite rough in places, and not suitable unless used to walking country paths. Lovely cafes both ends of the walk.

Well worth the walk - around 4-5 miles return. Cafes serve local food including recommended crab sandwich. Very scenic and lots to see and do along the walk.

Great views, fresh sea air and very good exercise. This is what sea walks in Cornwall are all about.
