Continuing the cliff walking for the beginning of this picturesque section, take the path up to Dodman point with views of Lizard and onward before decending to Mevagissey.
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.
