South West Coast Path: Penzance to Falmouth

Walk from Penzance to Falmouth, a less travelled section of the South West Coast Path that stretches round the remote and wild Lizard Peninsula. 

The trail follows rugged cliff tops, taking you past deserted coves and whitewashed cottages. Pass St Michael’s Mount that vis linked to the mainland by a cobbled causeway and see Loe Pool, Cornwall’s largest freshwater lake. 

Due to the sub-tropical conditions, this area of Cornwall is a paradise for botanists and nature lover’s. The UK's flora and fauna are at their finest with an abundance of rare wild flowers, and in the turquoise waters of the English channel you can  spot basking sharks and grey seals.
