From Coverack you will mostly be following the trails of the South West Coast Path  further down the rugged Lizard peninsula and you will pass through places with quirky names such as the Devil’s Frying Pan, the Oxen, and the Balk! This area has a rare geology that creates a haven for exceptional plants and flowers. Head inland to the village of Lizard where you will spend the next 2 nights.
