On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Trebarwith Strand to Port Isaac

The path between Trebarwith Strand and Port Isaac is especially long and difficult, with some steep descents into valleys and tough climbs up to the cliff tops again, especially beyond Bounds Cliff. Historically this area was significant for fishing and fish processing as well as slate extraction and there are remnants of these trades to be seen on the path. This stretch is designated both Heritage Coast status and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty so it is worth bringing a camera as you are guaranteed some stunning views. Port Isaac is the perfect end to this strenuous walk with many listed buildings, harbourside cafe and pubs and beautiful alleyways. The alleyways between the houses in Port Isaac are very narrow, with one being called ‘Squeezibelly Alley’. Recommended pubs in Port Isaac include the Golden Lion, where you can sit on a balcony overlooking the harbour and the Slipway (more restaurant than pub) which is built into the cliff.
