Walk by the Beach –
Bars and beaches in general are a magnet for the younger generation. But there’s the coastline around Cornwall that’s perfect for your walk. The National Trust takes care of much of the Cornish coast and beaches. In the middle of the year, sometime June or July, beautiful flowers of about 154 species fill the head rows along the coast. You can expect a picturesque combination of flower topped cliffs and sandy shores.
Be on Top of the World –
While you literally won’t be on the highest point in the world, reaching one of the headlands which jut out into the sea will take your breath away. The view is just beyond description. Wait until sunset to witness an even more wonderful unfolding of nature. Or you can start your hiking early too see the sun rise.
