Walk - Porthcothan to Mawgan Porth
4.5 miles (7.2 km)
Porthcothan car park - PL28 8LW Mawgan Porth
Moderate - Coastal path above high cliffs which have slumped in places: take care near the egde. There are stretches of ascent and descent, some of it steep.
A one-way walk from Porthcothan to Mawgan Porth, giving breathtaking views from the high cliffs over sandy coves, out across the rolling Atlantic. North Cornwall's ragged rocky coastline is particularly spectacular at Bedruthan Steps, where the sea has carved dramatic cliffs, caves, stacks and islands, making it one of the Coast Path's most iconic beaches. It is also of national importance for its fossils and the unusual plant life in its slumped cliffs.
