South West Coast Path: Padstow to St Ives

Walk along Cornwall’s Atlantic Coast from the charming seaside town of Padstow to bustling St Ives on the South West Coast Path. Golden beaches, picturesque fishing villages, wild seas crashing and secluded coves are all features of this wonderful week of walking. 

As you walk south you'll discover estuaries full of fauna and flora, and some of the UK’s best beaches.  Relish each overnight stop, all of which are highlights. By the time you arrive in St Ives, the most famous of Cornwall’s holiday towns, you will want to turn around and do it all over again.
