Beautiful bit of coastline - children really enjoyed the walk

Each time I stay in St Ives I walk this section of the coastal path. It's all lovely but the views beyond Carbis Bay are particularly stunning. In spring the hedgerows along the path are a mass of flowers. Today I counted primroses, violets, red campion, herb robert, bluebells, arum lilies, celandines, selfheal and buttercups. When you come out of the wooded area above Porth Kidney sands the view takes your breath away. The sea (on sunny days) is translucent turquoise and the beach is pale gold. It's possible to pick your way through the dunes down to the beach, excellent for driftwood, and along to the Hayle estuary. As you turn the corner up the beach by the estuary there are a series of grottos set in the cliffs, and little streams running down to soak into the sand. There's a loo and cafe at Carbis Bay, very few facilities beyond there unless you walk right up to Lelant.

I enjoy the Juassic coast of the south of england but never expected the views would extend this far west to Cornwall. The path is extremely safe and well cared for especially if you consider the amount of people who walk it. Go prepared as the wind and change of weather can catch you out

In my opinion the Cornwall section of the South West Coast Path offers the best views on it. It stretches along rocky cliffs, visits quaint villages and passes the iconic Lands End. I particularly recommend the section from St Ives to Lands End, passing historic tin workings and offering spectacular views.
