Day 2 - Port Isaac to Padstow - North Cornwall Coast Path

Distance 12 miles - Grade 9 miles Strenuous grade and 3 miles Easy grade - What these grades mean

Stunning panoramas are the highlight today, as you pass through the abandoned village of Port Quinn and on to Pentire Head, where the extensive views of the Camel Estuary and the offshore Mouls rocks are said to be the best on the whole 630 mile South West Coast Path.

Round the dramatic Rumps headland with its Iron Age cliff fort and pass the fabulous surfers beach at Polzeath and John Betjeman's heavenly St Endoc Church, before a final foot ferry ride across the dreaded doom bar in the golden Camel Estuary to arrive in cosmopolitan, bustling Padstow.
