The walk from Looe to Portwrinkle starts by passing the holiday parks at Millendreath and then the path climbs up to Bodigga Cliff.  Some lovely woodland walking up on the cliffs follows until you head down to Seaton Beach where there is a quaint  beach café to take a well deserved rest.

Head through Downderry and if the tide is out you can walk along the beach. A zig- zagged path leads up to Batten Heights which is the highest point on the whole Cornwall coast at 461ft.  The path continues around Whitesands Bay to finish the days walk in the pretty fishing village of Portwrinkle.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
