St Ives to Zennor Circular Walk

This is a popular walk from St Ives to Zennor along the South West Coast Path. Most of the path is pretty good but there is some climbing and scrambling required on some sections of the path. There’s wonderful coastal scenery with dramatic cliffs rising hundreds of feet above the sea, beautiful beaches and delightful coves. The walk heads out through the Ayr district of St Ives passing Porthmeor beach and the Tate Gallery. You then head to Zennor Head passing Hor Point, Pen Enys Point, Carn Naun Point and Gala Rocks. There are also views over to the Carracks, home to a colony of Grey Atlantic Seals. When you reach Zennor head you turn away from the coast towards the little village. The return leg takes you from Zennor back to St Ives via some beautiful countryside, passing Tremedda and Trevalgan before returning to St Ives.
