Walk - Holywell and Kelsey Head
3.7 miles (6.0 km)
Holywell Car Park - TR8 5PW Holywell Car Park
Moderate - Of moderate difficulty, with some steep climbs through the sand dunes.
A varied walk crossing sand dunes, cliff tops with an Iron Age cliff castle and maritime heathland. In spring and summer Polly Joke is full of wildflowers, and in autumn the birds of prey attracted by the gathering flocks of migrant birds sometimes include a hen harrier or maybe a merlin. Children will love the dunes and the beach, and will delight in exploring the rocks and the caves at low tide.
Polly Joke and Holywell are dog friendly beaches. Have a look at our Top Dog Walks on the South West Coast Path for more dog friendly beaches and pubs. Use this walk (or part of it) to visit the beaches at Holywell or the hidden beach of Polly Joke.
