komoot planned a hike.
June 19, 2019
This stage of the Coast Path begins as a leisurely saunter but soon becomes a challenging hike with steep descents and some grueling climbs.
The reward for all the hard work is the quaint fishing village of Port Isaac. With its narrow and winding streets—lined with old white-washed cottages and traditional slate and granite Cornish houses—it is packed with character and has plenty of harborside cafes and pubs.
The section of trail between Trebarwith Strand and Port Isaac is especially challenging. With some steep descents into valleys and tough climbs up to the cliff tops again, especially beyond Bounds Cliff, your fitness and technical ability will be tested.
However, you will find this section abundant with beautiful scenery, wildlife, and a fantastic fishing heritage that dates back hundreds of years.
Port Isaac has a good range of accommodation and places to eat and drink, as well as shops and other attractions.
