Cornish Coast Path Challenge- Porscatho to St Antony Head

Distance: 8.59 miles

Time: 3 hours 16 minutes

This weekend we decided to take it easier with a slightly shorter walk than the big Gunwalloe to Kynance Cove one! This was now walk number 5 of our Cornish Coast Path Challenge and we felt like we were making good progress.

I'll be sharing tips from all our Cornish Coast path walks in a series of blog posts; check out our previous blog post all about our walk from Gunwalloe to Kynance Cove. Or this one from Carbis Bay to St Ives.

Parking was a bit more tricky here. We originally planned to start at St Antony's head as this is a National Trust car park, but we thought the car park might close before we got back, due to it being out of season. So we drove to Porscatho to start our walk at the other end. Porscatho is a beautiful village with stunning houses. We found a little side road to park safely on and started our walk there.

During late Spring through to early Autumn this walk wouldn't be too difficult, as the mild weather would give the ground a chance to dry up between showers. We went when it had been quite rainy so part of the walk was very muddy; good shoes are essential!

The sea along this walk was sparkling; at every cove we stopped and admired the clear, turquoise water, wishing it was warm enough to get in for a dip!
