This path takes you away from the everyday worries. Lovely scenes every now and then, but also shrubbery, a lot of lovely green shrubbery for us jungle lovers. Blackberries too, if you go there in late August - September.

Don't be fooled by the gentle tarmac path near Porthmeor - the path soon becomes more challenging so wear something sensible on your feet. The 6 or 7 miles took me 3.5 hours to walk and doesn't disappoint with some stunning coastal views. There's a...More

We lve this part of coast path & wandered off a coule of times down to promontories. Despite the hot summer the foliage was still dense so it felt like a real adventure. The views out to sea are, as always stupendous!

Fantastic views on this lovely walk. Popped into a lovely chapel at Lalant and had tea and cake which was welcome. Lots of interesting things to read and a very moving poppy display telling the reader about local WW1 heroes who gave their lives for...More

Never tire of the views on the Cornish coast, been going to Cornwall for over 30 years and I still love that first glimpse of the rugged coast line

Good walk with some excellent views but not sure the conditions would be good if it rained or at night, but its certainly a good work out to test your fitness, and staying power.

The route wasnt too crowded. Green tunnels, views of old estates, seascapes, and a view of the beaches along the way. It is also very well marked, making it difficult to get lost. Some stairs and inclines, but overall not a very difficult walk.

Moderate walking with some ups & downs. Set out from St Ives along the bitumen Trail, following the train line. There’s a couple of slightly steep passages & some steps over the Trainline, down to Cabrais Bay, where you can get refreshments then either walk...More

Most of the Coastal Path is very well sign-posted. We used an OS Map to plan a circular walk from Halsetown, out to coast path west of St Ives, then back through St Ives and back up to Halsetown. We parked on the roadside in... More
