Started at Portscatho car park and headed along the coast towards St Anthony Head, on to Place and back to our car via Porth. I’ve wanted to walk this area for quite some time and it didn’t disappoint even in gale force winds. Stunning scenery,...More

A good place to park, members park free. You can walk down to the beautiful beach, onto the coastal path or walk on to St Anthony Head. Whichever you choose the views will be fantastic.
