    we have done bits of this walk most days. You can either do a long all or just a little chunk. Parts of it are muddier and trickier than others but its stunningly beautiful .  more »

    A breath of fresh air for lovers of the sea and hiking. The trail network is very well kept, well reported, so that even taking the short cuts eventually get back on its feet! Nature is wild, but never too far away from the axes of communication and the villages. You can see many birds, and if you have the chance, seals, dolphins, and seems it a few sharks and whales! A large part of the sides is cut off and rock, interspersed with large bays of sand end. Attention however to the distances! On the map, it always seems more short... In reality, it twists along cliffs, up, down, so plan a large bottle of water and a good margin of time :) Also, note the excellent bus network serving all parts of the region in the summer. The pass 7 days unlimited (£26 in 07/2017) is very beneficial if it is taken regularly (count 3-4 pounds for a one-way trip to the unit).

Where to stay in St Ives

A guest room along one of the cobbled Victorian streets, such as Fore Street, provides access to pubs, restaurants and the harbor. For spectacular views over the sea, consider a hotel near the water. Book harborside lodging early because seaside rooms fill up fast, especially during the holiday season. Inland from the southern coastline, renovated shepherd's huts and cottages provide shelter among the hills.
