Top 10 Walks: South West Coast Path: South Cornwall




Land’s End to Plymouth

The ten walking routes featured here highlight the best short circular walks along the South Cornwall Coast section of the popular, 630-mile long South West Coast Path (SWCP).

Running from Land’s End at the very western tip of England to Penlee Point, guarding the entrance to Plymouth Sound, Cornwall’s deeply convoluted south coast is infinitely varied, ranging from rugged cliffs braced against the full force of Atlantic waves to the sheltered Cornish Riviera where the weather, scenery and flora can be almost Mediterranean.

Large towns are few, but attractive villages, hamlets and harbours abound, usually with a welcoming pub or café not far away.

The five-book series of ‘Top Ten Walks’ covers the whole of the UK’s famous South West Coast Path. Each book explores the highlights along the way; showcasing its natural beauty, wildlife and heritage.

Once you’ve tasted what the South Cornwall section has to offer, we think you’ll be inspired to come back to tackle the complete trail.
