After a ferry to Polruan, be prepared for a challenging section of the Path. Be sure to rest between steep ascents and take in the expansive landscape as reward.

Today you start off by catching a small passenger ferry across to Polruan. It's quite a steep start to the walk today heading up to the cliff tops but you will be rewarded with some fabulous views. The route is very remote and wild. Head down to the unspoilt beach of Lantic Bay with its turquoise sea.
