South West Coast Path: Penzance to Falmouth (7 Days & 6 Nights)

  • Walking around the wild and rugged Lizard Peninsula.
  • The stunning sight of St Michael's Mount.
  • Sub-tropical conditions that produce rare wild flowers.
  • Secret smuggler’s coves and hidden creeks.
  • Picnic lunches on the golden sands of secluded coves.
Walk from Penzance to Falmouth, a less travelled section of the South West Coast Path that stretches round the remote and wild Lizard Peninsular. The trail follows rugged cliff tops taking you past deserted coves and whitewashed cottages. Pass St Michael’s Mount which is linked to the mainland by a cobbled causeway and see Loe Pool, Cornwall’s largest freshwater lake. Due to the sub-tropical conditions, this area of Cornwall is a botanist and nature lover’s paradise. See nature at its finest, with an abundance of rare wild flowers and basking in the turquoise waters of the English channel, spot basking sharks and grey seals.
