South West Coast Path Part 6 Day 3 – The Lizard to Coverack

Looking back at Cadgwith from the Coast Path
Looking back to Cadgwith from the path. South West Coast Path Part 6 Day 3


Approximately 10.5 miles. Moderate to Strenuous

Picking up at The Lizard, my finish point yesterday, I’ll head off to Coverack having left one of the cars there this morning.  This Southern-most part of the UK is reputed to be one of the most stunning stretches of the South West Coast Path.  

Having reached the Southern-most point of the UK mainland, the next stretch will see us heading North again – no surprises there! We’ll head up the coast to Cadgwith which is the last town on this stretch.

Maybe the last chance for coffee and cake before heading on to Coverack

After Poltescu, the route head East before turning North again at Black Head. The stretch of coast is very remote with hardly any villages and few roads with access to the path.

Coverack – the end point for Day 3 of this stretch of the South West Coast Path
