Photo blog: St Agnes to Chapel Porth and back again

When you’re blessed with a sunny day and a spare morning or afternoon, take a trip to St Agnes on the north coast for a stunning stroll and delicious refreshments…

Other than a hill to begin with, and a steep decline at the end at Chapel Porth beach, the walk is quite steady and flat – although a little stony. The rough and rugged clifftops are really spectacular, with plenty of benches dotted along the cliff path to admire the view. Getting to Chapel Porth takes roughly 90minutes, so after a rest and a paddle, you should have plenty of time to return back again. We’d thoroughly recommend the Chapel Porth café for refreshments – generous seafood baguettes, sausages with onions fried in clotted cream and sinful Hedgehog ice creams.

Begin at Trevaunance cove with beautiful turquoise waters.

Bawden Rocks in the distance.


After a steep climb, the path is mainly flat with beautiful views of the Atlantic.
