Walk - Port Quin & Pine Haven
4.2 miles (6.8 km)
National Trust Port Quin car park - PL29 3SU Port Quin car park
Challenging - A lot of steep ascent and descent including flights of steps. Take care near the unfenced cliff edges.
A strenuous rollercoaster walk from the twice-abandoned fishing village of Port Quin, where the mineral-stained caves echo with the eerie call of nesting pigeons, to Pine Haven, on the edge of Port Isaac. Head inland up a steep-sided valley before returning across farmland where peregrines can be seen diving at high speed in pursuit of the small birds that flock around the hedges. There are breathtaking views up and down a rocky coastline dramatically sculpted by the pounding waves.
