Walk - Porthluney Cove
3.9 miles (6.2 km)
Porthluney Beach car park - PL26 6LX Porthluney Beach car park
Easy - Coastal and inland paths, which may be muddy. There are some short stretches of ascent and descent, but only one is steep
A short walk around the northern part of the ragged rocky coastline that bounds Veryan Bay, where secluded sandy coves are backed by ancient hamlets whose roots date back to prehistoric times. At Porthluney the magnificent Caerhays Castle that dominates the beach was designed by Buckingham Castle architect John Nash, and its extensive gardens and woodland are world-famous for their exotic plants. Visit in the spring, when Caerhays is open to the public and its gardens are at their luxurious best.
