A Short Walk From Spit Beach to Carlyon Bay
A while back I mentioned a short walk from Carlyon Bay, Cornwall which ended when approaching Spit Beach. So today I'm starting at Spit Beach.
Now Spit Beach isn't everybody's cup of tea. There's a pull in to park the car but then a messy path winds its way to the beach. The path isn't very attractive as it passes a china clay works. It's also known locally as - well to put it as politely as possible - 'Dog S**t Alley '. As the name suggests it's used by local dog walkers.
In saying that the beach isn't too bad as can be seen from the photo at the top of this post.
Once at the beach there is a coastal path which leads to Carlyon Bay.
There are pleasant views of the sea and coast
The path climbs upwards and there are warning signs to stay away from the cliff edge. I'm not making this walk sound too good am I! But the path itself is quite safe.
The sea can look quite attractive from on high - so clear at times.
The path continues ...
... until Carlyon Bay is in view. To get to the beach just keep on following the path.
