Walk - Tregurrian & Trevarrian
5.3 miles (8.5 km)
Watergate Bay car park - TR8 4AA Watergate Bay car park
Challenging - There is plenty of ascent and descent, some of it steep and some of the route may be muddy or wet.
A coastal walk high above the two-mile stretch of golden sand at Watergate Bay, passing a prehistoric fort along the way, before looping through Mawgan Porth to return via fields and lanes. The area is littered with the remnants of previous populations, including barrows from the Bronze Age, a Saxon settlement from the Dark Ages, a medieval chapel which became a wagon shed and the course of a half-built canal meant to run from Mawgan Porth to Newquay. An excellent walk for older children with plenty of energy.
