Crantock to Perranporth

Starting at Crantock make your way over the grassy dunes named Rushy Green and up onto the headland of Pentire Point West. Do this walk in summer and the grass will be teaming with vibrant wild poppies.

Cross the huge expanse of golden sand at Hollywell and get up onto the coast path at the other side passing the distinctive twin pyramids called Carter's rocks out at sea. You'll then dip and curve passing shear rugged cliffs and turquoise coves bellow until to reach the vast sands of Perranporth. 

If you've got more in you press on to St Agnes clinging to the cliffs all the way until you reach Trevellas.. if the tide is low scramble across the rocks to Trevaunance Cove and up the beach to a well earned pint at the Driftwood Spars.
