Route Outline

Lizard Point is the most southerly point on the mainland of Britain. At times it can be very busy with visitors especially when the weather is fine. This Cornwall walk links some of the highlights of the peninsula and provides a good full day walk especially if you take your time and perhaps stop for refreshments en-route. One word of warning - coastal paths never seem as long on maps as they are in reality and the section from Cadgwith back to the Lizard certainly falls into this category with constant twists and turns adding time and miles to the route!
