South West Coast Path
Not very pretty Penzance, in Cornwall, is a convenient starting point for - arguably - the prettiest 4 day walk on the South West Coast Path. See a map.
The best section of the lush but lengthy 630 mile South West Coast Path is thought by many hardened hikers to be the 50 mile (80 kms) section from Cornwall's Penzance running east (though the route in reverse is equally possible though the wind is likely to be in your face, literally) via varied stunning sights including St Michael's Mount, Kynance Cove, Praa Sands beach and the Devil's Frying Pan crater. This approximately 4 day walk would offer comfortable nights in Porthleven, Lizard Point and Coverack, finishing in the lovely traditional Cornish village of Helford.
For convenience Luggage Transfers will move hiker's bags from place to place anywhere on the South West Coast Path, while you walk with the minimum.
