Good footpath access. Not. Open to the public. There are a few benches there so you can take a well earned rest if you have walked along the cliffs

We walked to the lighthouse (and beyond) during a recent stay in Cornwall. Be warned. Take good footwear and sun cream. If it’s hot you will burn and not realise it because of the coastal winds. The views are stunning.

A very quick walk to the lighthouse because it was pouring with rain. The coastal views would be gorgeous on a lovely day. Not open to the public.
