Walk - Polperro to Portwrinkle
12.7 miles (20.4 km)
Challenging - Moderate to strenuous
The South West Coast Path leads you along a fantastically varied journey of high cliff paths, urban landscapes, shady woodland, passing rocky coves and through wide open fields, resulting in a mixture of easy strolling and some more strenuous walking.
After Looe, the Path passes through the holiday village of Millendreath and opens up again on Bodigga Cliffs, where the views open out to the Path ahead and Rame Head in the distance. In some places the Path twists and climbs to heights with spectacular views, especially on the approach to Battern Cliffs, which is one of the highest points on the south coast of Cornwall at 462 ft (141 m). From here you enjoy some truly fantastic cliff walking to the fishing village of Portwrinkle with views of the 4 mile expanse of Whitsand Bay beyond.
