Great place to get onto the Coast Path, with out walking a great distance, easy to park but only for short stays 2 hours or so, Could make Logen Rock and back if wanted to.

Life is not complete until you have walked the length of the Southwest Coast path .Youmay average 4 miles an hour but in some areas 1 mile can be a challenge Joining at Lamorna the path gets easier as you approach Lands End
