Coastal Path Walk From Trevethy to Trebarwith Strand

We left the campsite at Trethevy to follow the coastal path to Trebarwith Strand approximately 4.5 miles away.

The climb down from the campsite takes you through a scenic valley with a small stream running down to the sea.

The coast path continues to Tintagel and as always, beautiful scenery and at this time of year, plenty of wild flowers carpeting the slopes.

As you climb out of Tintagel you get a good view of the ruins of King Arthur’s Castle which sits on the headland at the foot of Tintagel and is reached by a footbridge.

The walk from Tintagel to Trebarwith Strand is easy being mostly flat with just a bit of a steep climb down into the village of Trebarwith Strand.  Along the way you pass old quarry ruins, the slate having been used for the lovely herringbone dry stone walls and styles that you come across along the Cornish coast.

The village itself looks a good surfing venue, with full lifeguard services and a good size beach when the tide is out and several cafes and shops selling the usual beach equipment, souvenirs, pasties and plenty of Cornish ice-cream!

As we had left a car at Trebarwith Strand earlier in the day, we drove back to Tintagel and picked up fish and chips on the way back to the campsite.
