Regarde as one of the best sections of the long distance south west path . The walk towards Lands end can be invigorating to both body and mind

We enjoyed the coastal path from Carbis Bay to St Ives with stunning views. Most was easy under foot and the bridge over the train track.

We walked from Carbis Bay into St Ives along this path. It's a lovely little coast walk that gives you some great views across Carbis Bay and some great views into St Ives as you approach. It took around 25-30mins when we walked, but we...More

Walking the famous Coastal Pathways of the UK must include this one near St Ives. The views are stunning, and the walks are well to do for the average walker

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
