Portwrinkle to Plymouth: South West Coast Path – Part 7, Day 6

South West Coast Path - Portwrinkle to Plymouth
Portwrinkle to Plymouth - South West Coast Path Part 7 Day 6


The sixth and final day for this particular trek. Today I’ll be walking the South West Coast Path from Portwrinkle to Plymouth


Approximately 13 miles – Challenging: Moderate to Easy


09:30 – 10:00 Drive to Portwrinkle where I left off yesterday.
10:00 – 13:00 Walk to Whitsand bay in the hope of finding some lunch here.
13:30 – 14:30 Lunch in Whitsand Bay (or wherever I can find some suitable refreshment
14:30 – 16:00 Press on to Cremyll where, if time permits, I’ll take a ferry ride across to Plymouth and back before taking a taxi back to pick up my car.

Possibly the easiest stretch of this week’s trek, but by now even easy may seem quite taxing. On the whole quite a remote stretch too, so I’m not exactly sure where I’ll take my breaks. One of those days where bringing a sandwich or two would be a very good idea.

If I’ve done well, and the mood takes me, I’ll take the ferry across to Plymouth (just so I don’t miss anything out). 

You can find the highlights and more information on this route on The South West Coast Path website

You are more than welcome to join me on this trip and or on any part of my next SWCP journey – subject, of course, to sensible social distancing measures. Please get in touch beforehand though and I will be sure to look out for you.

And please bookmark this page and return a few weeks later; I will be posting an update and some more photographs in good time.
