Best Walks in Cornwall

When you're not on the beaches, you'll likely be walking between them along the stunning coastal paths. Try walking these three best walks in Cornwall.

The Camel Trail

It’s not surprising that this is the favourite, with over 19miles to explore and suitable terrain for every type of visitor. Thankfully you don’t have to do the whole thing in one go to get anywhere – it follows the Camel River through various towns and villages that can be used as start and end points.


Luxulyan Valley World Heritage Site

Not strictly ‘a walk’ but there is plenty of walking to be had through the site, with interesting artefacts to spot along the way and lots of Cornish history to boot. But it’s the breathtaking natural beauty of the area that is the real draw, so get wandering.


Port Quin to Port Isaac

Some good tips from our reviewers on how to tackle this attractive coastal walk. There are lots of steps if you take the clifftop route, or for a less strenuous trip, stroll slightly more inland to get to the same place.
