I completed this walk a few weeks back now, it is one that I have had my eye on for awhile as I know the views from St. Anthony Head are stunning having previously visited.  However I was always concerned that I would struggle to cover the nearly 6 miles in-between school runs.  Having successfully negotiated my previous walk (which you can see here) within plenty of time, it gave me the confidence to head for this walk.

The walk covered 6.5 miles

Starting the walk at St. Anthony‚Äôs Head was familiar ground with fantastic views across to Falmouth.  I wasted little time here though getting straight on with the walk, knowing that if I had time at the end of the walk I could enjoy the views from here without feeling the time pressures.  

The stunning Porthbeor Beach

The first highlight on the walk was the stunning Porthbeor Beach.  The views looking along the coast and down to the beach were stunning.  I spent a lot of time here taking images and it is a place I would like to return to.  The next stop was another great looking beach at Towan Beach.  At this point the walk took me back in land towards the National Trust site of Porth Farm.  There was a nice little cafe here and National Trust car park and under the September heat I did succumb to an ice cream!

The next stage of the walk followed along the estuary through some woodlands and occasional openings in the woods revealing some stunning properties on the waters edge.  Further around the walk presented fantastic views of St. Mawes.

Jealous of some of the properties along the walk!

Coming out of the woodland I was nearly back at St. Anthony Head with fantastic views looking back at St. Mawes and now across to Falmouth.  There are a couple of coves of Great Molnuan Beach which looked stunning and again I spent quite a bit of time here taking images knowing I was nearly back at the car.

Fantastic views of St. Mawes

I did the walk in good time and once again the instructions from the book were great.  I have to say this walk might be one of my favourites so far.  It had rugged coast line with great views, woodland, estuary views and much more.  It had such a variety to see along the way.
