You tell us...winter beach walks
Winter walks... the people have spoken. We asked our friends on Facebook to tell us about their favourite places in Cornwall for winter walks: here are some of their favourites.
Hayle Towans to Godrevy
"Three miles each way, don't forget your flask and sandwiches” says Gary Carpenter. Gordon Patten pines: "It’s wonderful, why the hell did I move away?". And Ian Hillyar agrees whole-heartedly, “Gordon, why oh why did you move? We holiday there a lot. Did you take leave of your senses, lol. Hayle Towans is the best”.
Domini Ramratan says “Perranporth every time!! I was lucky enough to spend the first few years of my life living in one of those flats which lead onto the beach.... t’was a gorgeous front garden!! :)”. Claire Barnes agrees, “Has to be Perranporth every time”.
Daymer Bay to Polzeath
Ann Greening says “Daymer Bay, Harlyn Bay, Padstow, they are all fab, had Christmas week down there and walked along them all!”. Clive Taylor gets partisan, “Although we love all Cornwall’s beaches, our favourite for winter walks has to be Daymer Bay, Rock and the Camel estuary”.
Angie Lockwood says “… I found Watergate Bay and was entranced, and especially by the Extreme latte in the Beach Hut cafe… going back again later this year”. Ann Pooley has the same opinion “Watergate at low, low tide when you can get round to Whipsiderry without clambering over rocks. That’s a fabulous walk”
Sue Page enthuses “Constantine Bay, from Treyarnon Bay, stop for a hot-choc at Toms coastal coffee van at Constantine Bay... Magic!” For Melissa Sibbald it’s the same, “Trevone along to Haryln Bay then onto Constantine”.
Gets Richard Dawson’s vote. “Along the cliff tops at Porthtowan and then into Blue Bar for a coffee, love it” and Carrie Roberts agrees, “Same as Richard, the cliffs above Porthtowan or Tintagel to Trebarwith Strand ending up in the Port William Pub - lovely :)”
South East Cornwall
Suzanne Fuller says "don’t forget the Cinderella of Cornwall! Lansallos is fantastic!”. Same goes for Andrew Driscall “Lantic Bay or Whitsand Bay near Rame Head”.
