Our favourites being:
An invigorating walk, starting from Porthmeor Beach and out onto the South West Coast Path as it travels through the open heathland of Clodgy Point, rich in wildlife. Upon reaching Clodgy Point, head upwards, sticking to the left hand footpath. The route returns through the ancient landscape of patchwork fields bounded by tumbledown granite walls. The path is rough in places, and there is some ascent and descent, though none of it is steep or prolonged. Don’t forget to look out for seals!
Situated just off, Trencrom dominates the local area, towering over Llant Downs. You can walk around the base of the hill and from the granite outcrop on its summit there are breathtaking views over to St Ives and in the other direction Mounts Bay.
Starting at Steeple Lane you can explore Steeple woods and climb up to the monument, taking in the stunning views of St Ives Bay. For a longer walk you can add the circular walk to Halsetown and enjoy a lunch or a pint at the Halsetown Inn half way round.
On the coastal road from Hayle to Gwithian shortly after the caravan park there is a left turn to Gwithian Towans with parking. In addition to the lovely towans you can drop down onto the beach. Enjoy lunch at the Sunset Cafe by the main car park.
