If there’s one thing one thing we know about Cornwall, it’s that there are some pretty spectacular views to be seen. There’s no better place to see them than from the wonderful footpaths of the top 6 walks in Cornwall.
Putting together these three beaches really is a thing of beauty. This walk makes the most of the wonderful North coast of Cornwall. Beginning in Crantock, head up to Pentire head towards Porth Joke beach. Wander over the sand dunes of Holywell bay and loop back through Cubert Common to form the circular route. During the summer months, Pentire Point is layered with poppies and marigolds making for a spectacular sight! Other sights to look out for is the cave said to have magical healing powers at holywell bay, along with the shipwreck which is visible at low tide.
A true Cornish pleasure. Located just North of St Austell, Luxulyan Valley is a brilliant spot for woodland and industrial archaeology discoveries. A place for tranquil walks through the woodland and natural beauty, combined with local mining history. The most prominent feature being the 10 arched, Treffy Viaduct, which towers over the river.
The coastal path around the Camel estuary is one of Cornwall’s most well-known areas. The transition between soft estuary to rugged wild rock faces exposed the range of landscapes Cornwall is home to. The walk has rich flower meadows and wet grassland with loads of wildlife to keep an eye out for.
Beginning at Driftwood Spars (a great chance to try the local ale) head towards the cliff tops. The path quickly heads upwards towards the sky, out of the valley and over the magnificent views of Trevaunance Cove. The path continues over glistening blue coves only accessible via the water. Your final view as you reach Perranporth will be the great waves rolling into the beach.
Away from the crashing waves and gusty winds, head further in land to find the circular walk of Porth Reservoir. Staying on the edge of the reservoir the trail passes bird hides along the woodland path which was once the entrance to a grand state. The walk takes you past the house ruins, along the ford at Trengove and onto the pretty hamlet of Colan.
Like many walks in Cornwall, it is important to check the tide times to make sure you don’t end up with soggy feet, and this walk is no acceptation. The walk to Bedruthan steps offers a fresh sea breeze and a treat for the eyes. Begin the walk at Carnewas car park where you will find a path offering you the best of the wild Atlantic. Follow the steps down to the beach where you can explore the array of hidden caves and rock pools.
