Getting to the Path by boat

If you are travelling from France or Spain to come and walk the South West Coast Path, you may wish to cross the channel by boat.

There are two main ports on the South West Coast Path itself, so you could be walking the Path very shortly after disembarking.

Follow the links below to find out more information about arriving into Plymouth or Poole.

Plymouth -on the Path - from France and Spain

Poole - 5 miles/8km from Poole Harbour end of the Path - from France

Both of these ports are served by Brittany Ferries.
