I love visiting Boscastle and enjoying the coastal path. The views are spectacular - the photographs you can get from here are just amazing. Do wear decent shoes with grip for rocky sections & it can get very windy too. Love walking here!

We did a coastal walk from Boscastle today We could not fault the paths at all they have been well maintained My only quibble was us deciding to go fully coastal walk rather than the in land option in the windy conditions today

We walked up to the watch tower and around the cliff edge there and were afforded the most spectacular views. Steep climb and sturdy walking shoes needed but well worth the climb.
