Walk - Beeny Cliff & Pentargon Falls
5.6 miles (9.0 km)
Boscastle Car Park - PL35 0HE Boscastle Car Park
Challenging - Paths, lanes and roads with some rough and rocky surfaces, with some long, steep gradients in both directions, including many steps.
The power of the water making its way to the sea is as evident around Boscastle as the power of the waves rolling in from the Atlantic and pounding the shoreline. As spectacular as the blowhole that booms and foams around low tide in the harbour is the torrent of water streaming over the cliffs at Pentargon Falls. Thomas Hardy met and courted his first wife nearby, and some of his most moving poetry was inspired by the scenery on this walk. Look out for seals on the rocks below Fire Beacon Point.
