Walk - Church Cove and Cadgwith
6.1 miles (9.8 km)
Lizard Point car park - TR12 7NT Lizard Point car park
Challenging - There is a lot of ascent and descent, some of it steep and on stony paths, but a number of well-signed paths lead back to Lizard village if a shortcut is needed.
A long walk, with shortcuts available, travelling on high cliffs above a series of coves and caves. Having crossed an important geological boundary, the Coast Path passes a spectacular hole in the cliffs, caused by the collapse of a sea cave, before continuing to the picturesque fishing village of Cadgwith, with its thatched cottages and stacks of crab creels. A good walk for children, with its lifeboat station and fascinating rock features, as well as its beach. It is also a popular place with birdwatchers in the autumn, especially on windy days, when flocks of seabirds can be seen flying past, including terns and skuas, and sometimes even storm petrels.
Cadgwith East is a dog friendly beach. Have a look at our Top Dog Walks on the South West Coast Path for more dog friendly beaches and pubs.
