Walks around Tregardock

The beach at Tregardock can only be reached (on land) from the footpath so it's one of the quietest sandy beaches on the North Cornish coast. You can visit it on a circular walk from Tregardock to Dannonchapel or a longer circular walk to Tregardock from Trewarmett. There's also an epic one-way walk along the coast from Port Isaac to Tintagel (catching the bus to Port Isaac at the start to make it circular).
