Walk - Hendra & Praa Sands
4.2 miles (6.8 km)
Praa Sands Car Park - TR20 9TQ Praa Sands Car Park
Easy - The walk follows footpaths through fields and around the coastline, with short stretches on quiet country lanes and tracks and an easy path through the dunes, and only a little gentle ascent and descent.
A short stroll through an area that buzzes with tales of smugglers and wreckers, as well as the part played by locals in saving lives at sea and giving a decent burial to those they tragically failed to save. Take time on the golden beaches at Praa Sands and Hendra to check out the fossilised peat beds, the rocky remains of the Ice Age and the craggy granite headland.
