From Portloe pass West and East Portholland which are both isolated hamlets. Porthluney beach is a great resting point today with its fabulous beach and a well earned rest from the cliff walking. Caerhays Castle stands behind the bay which is worth having a look at and especially its glorious gardens.
The path then climbs up to Dodman Point where the views are spectacular both back to Lizard and onward. Gorran Haven is a nice resting point and soon you reach Mevagissey, a working fishing village with a busy harbour, narrow backstreets and quaint shops.
