What you'll do
A short bus trip to join the Coast Path at Lansallos (NB available weekdays only) then walk on rugged terrain across cliff tops, crossing streams and skirting above the stunning Lantic Bay with its white sands and turquoise waters. There are several moderate climbs (mostly with steps), totalling 360m of ascent. Pencarrow gives expansive views across St Austell Bay to Dodman Point and the Lizard on a clear day. Looking east, there are views towards Polperro and beyond. Optional visit to the well-preserved 14th century blockhouse at the end of this 4.5 mile hike. You will need suitable clothing and footwear for rugged terrain and all weathers, a water bottle (1 litre is recommended) and a rucksack or other suitable carrier.
Former Duke of Edinburgh Award leader, Local Authority public rights of way team member and currently volunteer rep for the South West Coast Path Association, I am an experienced and passionate walker. I have good knowledge of local plants and wildlife to help you identify what you are seeing. I love to share my home town and my home stretch of the stunning coast path with friends and visitors. My family dates back in Cornwall to the 1500s and I have lived in Fowey for ten years. I will lead you safely and keep you informed and entertained as we walk.

Single journey Polruan to Lansallos
Where you'll be
The tiny hamlet of Lansallos with its beautiful church is our first call, then we walk rugged terrain across cliff tops and behind beaches. The headland and viewpoint of Pencarrow on the remote and well-loved South West Coast Path is our next goal. Looking down from clifftop path to Lantic Bay with its white sands and turquoise waters you might feel you are in the Caribbean rather than Cornwall. Excellent views in both directions on clear a day.
