This walk has some inspiring sights all year round, but especially in the spring when the heathland above the turquoise waters is bright with gorse and wildflowers and the hedges are decked in primroses and violets. Great in the autumn too, when the leaves start to turn and heather adds its colour to the heathland. Take the short ferry ride from Polruan back to Fowey at the end of your walk.
