Walk - Portmellon & Bodrugan's Leap
5.4 miles (8.6 km)
Gorran Haven Car Park - PL26 6JG Gorran Haven Car Park
Moderate - Coastal and inland footpaths that may be muddy, with a short stretch of quiet road and some ascent and descent which is steep in places.
A coastal walk between two coves where people have been sheltering from the wild westerlies since Stone Age times. There are dramatic views from the high cliffs, and on a clear day you can see right along the South Cornish coastline from Turbot Point - a headland also known as Bodrugan's Leap after the local landlord was forced to leap from the cliffs into a waiting boat to escape to France! Look out for seals on the rocks and wildfowl and waterbirds in the wetlands. An excellent walk for children, who will love the sandy beaches, which are safe for bathing and dog-friendly.
