Leave St Ives, a bustling fishing village with a wonderful harbour, and follow the wild and rugged coastline south.
Undulating paths on rough and demanding terrain make todays walk a strenuous one, but all worthwhile for the stunning views across the sea. Zennor is a small village which is a 10-15 minute walk inland from the coast, the local pub will be a welcoming sight after the walk today. The local museum is worth a visit which is dedicated to Cornish life from Prehistoric times.
If continuing on to Pendeen Watch, do not take the diversion off the Path to Zennor.

Consignes de sécurité
It should be said that the South West Coast Path is made up of largely coastal and cliffside walking and is not suitable for anyone suffering from vertigo or fear of heights. Take your time and great care when walking along the smaller cliff-side edged paths and be extra vigilant when walking in the rain or strong winds. Since the weather often changes rapidly in these areas, it can be difficult to predict so always check the weather ahead of time and be prepared.
At some sections on the trail you may have to pass other walkers on these cliffside paths - take your time, take great care and attention and pass safely.
