Porthcurno to Land's End (3.5 miles - medium-difficult)

This is a very pleasant walk with beautiful views - it does, however, involve some more difficult aspects involving climbing steps. Porthcurno has a car park very close to the start of the walk, Porthcurno beach. The coastal path is clearly labelled from the beach, and takes walkers past the famous open-air Minack theatre. The path continues on to St Levan and then Porthchapel beach. From the beach, there is a short climb up to Porthgwarra, where the path goes on to Gwennap Head. At Gwennap Head, there is a Coastal Lookout, as well as the Runnel Stone Daymarks (shipping beacons). From here, the path continues into Porth Loe. Upon reaching Nanjizal, take the footbridge over the beach. From the cliffs here, you will be able to see Enys Dodnan and the Armed Knight rocks out to sea, as well as Longships Lighthouse. The remainder of the path to Land's End is relatively level.
