Walk Details
This spectacular stretch of the north Cornwall coast offers views of the dramatic cliffs overlooking Bedruthan Steps, contrasted with the sheltered Porth Mear cove.

From Carnewas car park, follow the path which runs from the information board, turning right towards the coast path, and continue down the stone steps. Alternatively, start with a short detour along the path straight ahead and through the gorse, for dramatic views along the coastline in both directions before heading to the right and joining the path down the steps.

Please note the stairs are closed during winter from the beginning of November.

On arrival at Porth Mear, with a view of Trevose Head and the lighthouse.
