My lunch stop on a beautiful day on the South West Coastal Path, Cornwall. I spent an incredible week walking from St Ives to Penzance around the southwestern tip of Cornwall. I did not use an arranged walk. I pieced together my own itinerary based on many pieces of information and advice. I had wanted to do other things aside from hug the coastal path. I wanted to spend time in St Ives and Penzance. I also wanted to go see Mên-an-Tol, some standing stones, the surrounding Moors, the Minack Theatre, as well as some other divergences and village stops. I’ve linked some various resources to get you started if you’re interested. I would advise that parts of this section of the coastal walk are not easy. Leaving (or heading into) St Ives is surprisingly challenging, especially if you’re carrying any significant weight. It’s not like scaling a mountain peak now, but I was warned, and found the warning accurate even for a regular walker. It has many rocky ups and downs, something like walking the way a sound wave looks. That being said, if you have good weather, it’s spectacular!
