On this short section from Coverack, pass through a quarry and to divert away from the coast then to the official halfway point of the entire South West Coast Path at Porthallow.
Set off inland through Dean Quarry where igneous "gabbro" rock is mined. Wonderful cliff-top walking takes you along the path with views across to the Manacles Reef. The reef lies very close to the shipping lanes from Falmouth, where many lives have been lost and ships wrecked. From here reach the former fishing villages of Porthoustock and Porthallow.
