Port Quin to Port Isaac

If you are feeling adventurous take the route that follows the coastal path and benefit from the stunning view you will be surrounded by. Alternatively there is an inland walk which is equally attractive but less energetic and brings you to the same location.

A superb walk, but it is strenuous, with lots of energy-sapping steps. Views from the cliffs are superb and we were lucky enough to see dolphins just below.
It's probably best to do the walk anti-clockwise. Park in the NT car park at Port Quin, turn right on the road out of the car park and after about 200m take the footpath on the left, next to some cottages. The path across the fields is easy, except for one short sharp climb near Port Isaac. Return via the coast path - twice the distance and 10 times the effort. Wear good shoes and take water if the weather is hot.

A beauitful coastal walk from Port Quin to Port Isaac about 6 miles, the coast line just takes your breath away. Then arriving at Port Isaac for a well deserved Ice Cream on the beach. The walk back was done in half the time with finding the shorter walk over fields which was just as pretty.
