Coastal Walk; Treyarnon to Trevose Head Lighthouse
Time for another coastal walk and on this occasion, I headed to Treyarnon. Treyarnon is on the North Coast, between Padstow and Mawgan Porth. There’s a cluster of coves around this area and we were headed from Treyarnon, through Constantine and Boobys Bay, towards Mother Iveys. From Mother Iveys, we headed around the headland to Trevose head and back to Treyarnon – an easy walk covering so many sights along the way!
Treyarnon has a large car park, a shop and take away food spots, so it’s well equipped for a starting base. The beach is deep and spacious, with the most wonderful tidal pool for a mermaid dip!
Following the coastal path East, you’ll firstly stroll over the cliff top towards Constantine Bay. Constantine is a wide beach with great surf. You can continue across the beach or over the path, dependant on the tide. The next bay you will reach is Boobys Bay.
From Boobys Bay, follow the path inland past the carpark. As you follow the pathway, you’ll cross the road and soon find yourself at the opposite side of the headland and the incredible Mother Iveys Bay.
The viewpoint from above Mother Iveys is one of the most beautiful in Cornwall, as the calm water makes it look truly tropical. Following the coastal path Westerly towards the headland, you’ll come across Padstow Lifeboat Station.
From the Lifeboat Station, you can either head back along the path to Boobys Bay or up over the headland if you’re up for a slight climb. Up and over the headland and you’ll soon find yourself at Trevose Head and spot the beautiful lighthouse overlooking the water. The lighthouse is now a holiday let and would make a beautiful place to stay!
