Lovely scenic walk along the cliff top and down the steps to the beach (although watch your step!). Would highly recommend the National Trust cafe by the car park.

Possibly takes top spot for our fav beach in Cornwall! Very steep steps down to the beach make for an exciting walk and the beach (not for swimming) is huge and has great rock pools and caves for exploring. Need a certain level of mobility to do this but our 5yr old coped well. Lovely friendly tea room to reward... More

The National Trust visitor centre at Carnewas and the nearby clifftop walks are spectacluar. The stairs down on the beach at Bedruthan are steep and need care but at low water there is a fascinating rock-strewn sandy beach.

The steep steps down to the beach are well worth doing - the beach is stunning. It reminds me of an outdoor cathedral. The view if you don't want to brave the steps is still worth it.

A lovely spot to view the rugged Cornish coastline with ample parking and a very pleasant cafe. on a good day you can see for miles and the seabirds on the cliffs add to the experience. Walks are easy and well marked.

A super place for a coastal walk. Turn left at the cliff top and the walk is quite easy. Turn right and the walk is a bit more demanding. You can walk for 10 minutes or 4 hours. Super views. The tea room/café at the National Trust car park is very good with decent coffee and excellent bacon rolls.
