Cornwall's Coastal Path

St. Ives to Penzance.

The north and west coasts of Cornwall have a unique atmosphere – a mixture of the charm of St. Ives, famously beloved of artists and home to a branch of the Tate Gallery, to some of the wildest and most dramatic scenery along the entire English coastline. Add to this the wildlife, from Peregrine Falcons to dolphins, the fascinating mining heritage, the exhilaration of standing at Land’s End, the magnificent open-air Minack Theater, and the pretty fishing villages of Mousehole and Newlyn, and you have a magnificent moderate walking holiday.

Itinerary

This seaside town offers steep streets, magnificent views, a rushing surf and a beautiful light that has magically attracted artists for centuries. The Tate Gallery of St. Ives, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and the Sculpture Garden are just some of the reasons why St. Ives was considered the cultural capital of Cornwall.

Your hiking trip begins with a leisurely hike from St. Ives out to Clodgy Point, later on it goes on hilly terrain of the high cliffs always accompanied by beautiful bays to Zennor. Zennor was described by D. H. Lawrence as "the most beautiful place, much prettier than the Mediterranean" and the area around this beautiful place was certified as a nature reserve. By bus back to St. Ives.

Return by bus to Zennor, from where your walk will take you along the coast to the rocky promontory of Gurnard's Head. You hike to Cape Cornwall, the westernmost point of Cornwall, where the currents of the Atlantic Ocean part. It is worth visiting some of the famous museums before continuing inland to St. Just for overnight accommodation. St. Just is a popular meeting place for painters and potters, the charming place with its cafés and bars invites you to linger.

From St. Just to Whitesand Bay, where spectacular views await you, you may even see some of the seals in this area. The variety of seabirds on your way to the charming fishing village of Sennan Cove with its beautiful beach and wild surf will definitely delight you. On to the famous "Land's End", the southernmost tip of Great Britain. Enjoy the view of the wide, blue Atlantic Ocean. Along the steep coast to the open-air Minack Theater. At the end of the day you will meet the idyllic beach of Porthcurno, where you will also spend the night.

Today the hike goes from Porthcurno to the subtropical bay of Lamorna. You walk through an area of exceptional natural beauty, the route changes with each step and leads over rugged cliffs with some ascents and descents through Newlyn to Penzance. The legacy of the historic Artists' Union is still visible on every corner here, in both Lamorna and Newlyn you can see painters, writers, potters and craftsmen at work.

Tour character

Amazing panorama walks not only along the fascinating coast of Cornwall but also into the picturesque heart of the country. The terrain is easy and the path well-maintained, however we ask you to be cautious with cliff coasts. A good level of fitness is sufficient for each hike.

Sehr schöne Küstenwanderung!
Die komplette Reise hat uns super gefallen! Die gebuchten Unterkünfte waren richtig schön. Die von Eurohike organisierten Transfers haben alle zuverlässig geklappt. Ein Hinweis: Die Wanderung ist kein Spaziergang, man braucht teilweise Trittsicherheit und Kondition. Wir würden aber diese Reise immer empfehlen. Einfach traumhaft!
