Walk - Padstow and Stepper Point Walk
5.8 miles (9.4 km)
Padstow Harbour - PL28 8AF Padstow Harbour
Moderate - The walking is on tracks and footpaths on mostly level terrain. Bring a picnic if the weather's good.
A headland walk giving far-reaching views over the mouth of the River Camel and the Doom Bar, where mermaids wait to lure sailors to disaster! Features include sandy beaches, secluded coves, holy wells, a daymark tower, some stunning rock formations, and an abbreviated route for those looking for a shorter walk. An excellent walk for children and a good route in spring, when the bushes are decked out in sharp new leaves and luxurious blossom, and whistling whimbrels fly up the estuary in flocks of as many as a hundred birds.
