Walking Back To Happiness


And so we finish with a gentle amble (it's a lot quicker and less effort than walking along Porth Kidney) back along the actual coast path.

The path is not difficult to spot and should look something like this. Coast path above Porth Kidney, St. Ives Bay, Cornwall 1
If it starts resembling either a train track or a golf course you have wandered too far inland. Coast path above Porth Kidney, St. Ives Bay, Cornwall 2

If you are walking from the Hayle end the path starts out over the back of the sand dunes and gradually rises.

Warning. If you are walking from St. Ives and are seeing these sort of vistas please note that you are walking backwards and should seek immediate therapy.

The path continues to rise (with the occasional dip) towards the dizzy heights of Hawk's Point. Be warned the last bit is rather steep.
