Walking Swanpool to Maenporth

Both Swanpool and Maenporth Beach have cafés selling ice-creams, hot drinks and snacks. For something more refined you have the choice of Hooked on the Rocks, a great seafood restaurant with the most perfectly appointed terrace and outdoor seating platform above Swanpool Beach, or at Maenporth, behind the beach, also in an elevated position, you can settle back and savor the attentive customer service and decadent food of The Cove Restaurant.

Park at Swanpool in the Pay & Display car park, or on one of the roads adjacent to the Nature Reserve Lake, carefully checking the parking restrictions. Head east on the road behind Hooked on the Rocks and then left onto the SW coastpath. Revel in 1.5 miles of glorious sea views and then you will arrive at the golden sands of Maenporth Beach.

Distance: 1.7 miles (one way)

Terrain: Fairly gentle with some stretches of narrow path.
