Overview
More
A 4.5 mile walk along the South West Coast Path to blow away the cobwebs, travelling alongside the railway line high above St Ives Bay, through an area rich in ancient history, from Stone Age times to the nineteenth century, when lookouts watched out for the pilchard shoals arriving in the bay. Return to Lelant by train.

The colours are absolutely stunning and we got them both in the rain and the shine. What a wonderful part of the country this is.

Takes about two hours from Lelant Park & Ride Station. The coastal walk is beautiful but bear in mind that it is very narrow in places and very hilly! The views, particularly of the Hayle estuary, are spectacular although much of the walk is through...More

Part of the 630-mile (1000km) South West Coast Path this section begins in the sleepy village of Lelant (St. Uny Lelant in full, or Lannanta in Cornish) by the ancient church of St. Uny and takes you high above stunning St. Ives Bay. The way...More

We were staying in Carbis Bay and decided to walk to St Ives one day, it's a nice walk but unlike the walk from Leland there isn't much view until you reach St Ives, which was a shame. There is some property renovations going on...More

I was on the coastal path taking in the wonderful coastal scenery. The south west coast path is well worth the effort to walk.

Hi, As you would expect with the Coast Path some of it is along cliff tops, but on this section whenever you are close to an edge there is either a fence or a bank between you and the drop, so you should be fine.

The walk is about four and a half miles. We stopped in carbis bay for lunch. It does go up and down, and is steep in places. We got the train back to Lelant saltings.
