Our walk starts from a small car park off the Boscastle road and after a brief section of quiet road, we turn along a bridleway for about a kilometre through Cornish countryside. Another short section of country lane brings us to a path crossing a field to the coast path. Here you may often see seals basking on the beach in the quiet cove at the foot of the cliffs. The best time is two or three hours each side of low tide - check local tide tables. Our walk then continues round the rugged coast path and headland of Buckator Cliff with stunning views, before turning inland at the National Trust area of Rusey Cliff. The more intrepid walker may want to descend to Rusey Cove and then tackle the steep climb along the coast path to the clifftop. Otherwise our route takes us inland on the more gentle route to the clifftop before returning to the start.

This walk may be extended by a few, or as many kilometres as required, by following the coast path as far as you wish before taking one of the many links to the road, which leads back to the start. For example, an extension to Crackington Haven will add 8km and 420 metres climb to the walk but there are toilets, a pub and restaurant at the hamlet.
