On leaving your car, this stunning walk takes you along quiet stretches of roads before joining a long footpath to the lovely beach and dunes (known locally as towans) of Constantine Bay. Maybe the golden sands will invite you to rest awhile before joining the coast path, which leads you along this beautiful coastline onto Trevose Head and Light further along the coast. Continuing, the coast path - carpeted and lined with wildflowers (when in season) - follows the coastline past the new lifeboat station and Mother Ivey's Bay. Rounding Cataclews Point brings the walker to views over Harlyn Bay and after a short walk on the beach, returns them to their transport.

Keep a camera handy - it will capture a special place in your heart.

A bit wild, weather wise. But it is the British Summer. Stunning walk. Loads of geocaches. Seems a lot longer than the 5 miles. Photos and experience at http://mappiman.blogspot.com/2011/08/14811-trevose-head.html

A lovely walk, on a warm sunny spring morning after which we felt we deserved our cornish pasties. An added bonus was that the car park at Harlyn Bay was unattended and, therefore, free. We sat and watched the world go by on several of the plentiful benches along the coastal path. It was wonderful.

Great walk - be careful on the road sections especially at this busy time of year. The remainder of the walk is breathtaking and don’t forget to look over your shoulder. Chris & Sue.

Paul Shorrock - Super walk. The small amount of road walking involved is more than compensated for by the fabulous views from the Coastal Path. Starting at waymark 8 places the "Harlyn Inn" about halfway round the route. The wind comes straight off the Atlantic, so it's worth taking an extra layer of clothing, even on a sunny day.

You have to pay for all car parks including Trevose Bay.

What super views coming down from the Head and seeing three different beaches all at once gleaming gold in the sunlight!! Directions are fine.
