Top Ten Cornish Walks with a Coffee Stop
IN CORNWALL, COFFEE IS BEST Sipped after EXPLORING THE GREAT OUTDOORS…
We are spoilt for choice when it comes to stunning coastal paths and scenic walks in Cornwall. Nothing beats taking the weight off your feet after an energetic stroll with a warming coffee. These are our top ten walks in Cornwall with a coffee stop along the way.
towan beach to portscatho – THE HIDDEN HUT
The Hidden Hut is perched on the coastal path near Portscatho. An idyllic setting for a coffee or a spot of lunch, start your walk at Towan Beach and breathe in the sea air as you ramble along the remote Roseland peninsula.
ST AGNES HEAD CIRCULAR WALK – GENKI
Head to the north coast and explore St Agnes before stopping off at Genki. A petite cafe that serves hot coffee, refreshing smoothies and homemade goodies, a slice of cake is always a yes from us when visiting Genki!
nanjizal to porthgwarra – PORTHGWARRA COVE CAFE
Sweeping ocean views await on the coastal path from Nanjizal to Porthgwarra. You’ll definitely be deserving of a hot drink and something tasty as you reach Porthgwarra Cove Cafe. Sit on their outdoor picnic benches or grab your coffee to go and sit up on the cliff tops, before exploring the beach and caverns a few yards across the road. Just don’t forget to take your rubbish with you!
gunwalloe to poldhu – POLDHU BEACH CAFE
Serving up some of Cornwall’s most iconic hot chocolates, Poldhu Beach Cafe is a must-visit if you’re exploring The Lizard peninsula. Poldhu Beach Cafe is a really great choice for a wintery walk, as their fully loaded hot chocolates are the perfect remedy on a frosty afternoon.

Argal lake – WILD VIBES
A circular walk with a lovely pit-stop for food and drinks. Argal Lake is home to adorable ducks and elegant swans. A great choice for a Cornish walk away from the beaches and coastline.
GWITHIAN TO GODREVY – GODREVY BEACH CAFE
Take a stroll along the sandy three-mile stretch of Gwithian beach and take to the coastal paths with views of Godrevy lighthouse as you go. Stop to spot Cornish seals along the way. Then kick back and relax at the chilled out beach cafe for refreshments.

FLUSHING TO MYLOR – CAFE MYLOR
A short and relatively easy-going route to walk, start at the beautiful fishing village of Flushing (directly opposite The Greenbank). Walk across fields and country paths alongside the Carrick Roads with views of the estuary. Taking roughly an hour, arrive at Mylor via Restronguet Sailing Club – a bustling harbour of bobbing yachts and sails flapping in the breeze. Here you’ll find Cafe Mylor serving teas, coffees, tipples and tasty baguettes, cakes and more.
PENROSE TO PORTHLEVEN – ORIGIN COFFEE PORTHLEVEN
Approximately four miles each way, Penrose to Porthleven is a great walk to nail your daily step count whilst enjoying amazing scenery. Starting at National Trust Penrose, take the countryside-meets-woodland walk, passing leafy canopies, grassy fields and the grand Penrose House, a private stately home.
Head to Loe Bar, one of Cornwall’s most dangerous but entrancing beaches. Carry on the south west coastal path until you arrive to Porthleven’s harbour town with the famous clock tower. With plenty of pubs, pasty shops and cafes, we’d recommend Cornwall coffee-lovers to try a cup from Origin. Don’t neglect to check out the famous fishing port and beaches before you head back.
THE LIZARD TO KYNANCE COVE – KYNANCE COVE CAFE
Kynance Cove is a spectacular part of the Cornish coast and one that everyone should tick off their bucket list when visiting Cornwall. And the fact there is a lovely little cafe overlooking the stunning beach is just another added bonus! Park at the National Trust car park if you want to cut out the walk, or start at The Lizard village and enjoy a brisk coastal stride around the country’s most southerly point. You can even get hold of your favourite local beers and ciders at the cafe’s licensed bar. Nothing beats a cold brew on a bright day by the sea.
FALMOUTH SEAFRONT – GYLLY BEACH CAFE
Live the Falifornian dream with a leisurely walk along the seafront. There are so many routes you could take before visiting Gylly Beach Cafe. Do a lap of Pendennis Point, circling the old Tudor castle. Hit the shops and browse Falmouth’s high street before heading to the beaches. Or go from beach-to-beach starting at Swanpool and ending at Gyllyngvase. The beach cafe is spacious, offers irresistible baked treats, an impressive menu of top-notch food and plenty of talented baristas ready to whip up your coffee order.
