Whilst Cornwall is full of beauty spots and attractions that we’ve all heard of, at the same time there are dozens of quiet corners and coves that are a little trickier to reach (and we have to admit that makes them all the more special). The two mile stretch between Whitsand Bay and Rame Head may be pretty tough in the walking leagues, but if you’re up to it you’ll be rewarded with some of the county’s most striking unspoilt views.
You’ll find two Napoleonic forts as you go, and look out for the fascinating collection of shacks for some holiday photos the crowds usually miss. Rugged doesn’t have to mean going without a hot chocolate stop, and one of the cafes on this walk even has its own cable car delivery system. Leave time to pause and enjoy the views across Plymouth Sound towards the Yealm Estuary as it’s one of those sights you’ll want time to sit and make the most of before walking on.
The points of interest don’t stop when you reach Rame Head. This headland is home to a fourteenth century chapel dedicated to St Michael, and you’ll find the shell largely intact if you fancy a poke around.
