Walks around Portreath

For walks passing through Portreath, there are a couple of options: the walk from Portreath to Tobban Horse follows the coast towards Porthtowan and returns via the mineral tramways; alternatively you can park at the Tehidy North Cliffs car park and walk to Portreath along the North Cliffs, returning via Illogan Woods and Tehidy Country Park.

Some slightly less strenuous walks are from the Tehidy Country Park to Deadman's Cove via Coombe or from Deadman's Cove to Hell's Mouth along the North Cliffs and return along the Red River valley to Coombe. Finally there is a walk from Hell's Mouth to Godrevy Point with excellent views of the lighthouse.
