Catch the bus and walk back past the iconic rock formations at Bedruthan Steps. There are dramatic cliffs and headlands, and the remains of a prehistoric cliff fort. There are also sandy beaches that children will enjoy. This is a good walk in autumn, when the stubble in the clifftop fields provides rich pickings for the migrant pipits and buntings. If you are lucky you might spot a merlin hunting them overhead; and at low tide you may even see seals around Trethias.
This walk is particularly good for dogs as it passes a number of beaches and a pub where dogs are welcome. Have a look at our Top Dog Walks on the South West Coast Path for more dog friendly beaches and pubs.
This walk is fairly level, with only a couple of hills to ascend. As the 556 bus service runs along this section of coast it is easy to extend or shorten the walk.
