This day includes wonderful cliff top walking and reaching Land’s End is a real high point on the South West Coast Path. Here views across to all of the amazing rock formations - The Armed Knight, The Irish lady and Dr Syntax head to name a few can be seen from here.  Heading onwards follow the path past many coves and cliffs to the spectacularly located Minack Theatre at Porthcurno Bay.  It is perched on top of the cliffs overlooking the bay and from here the steps lead down to the beach and the village.
