This route from St Just to Porthcurno is stunning. It is a coast path and can be challenging at times but not too difficult. It is not suitable for prams/ wheelchairs and there are many steps and styles.
There are plenty of places to eat and drink along the route. St Just has 4 pubs and a great cafe, 'The Dog and Rabbit'. There are also places to eat at Sennen, and a great little outdoor cafe with toilets at Porthgwarra (fabulous beach too). This path also goes via Lands End. Whilst the scenery is stunning, I confess that the visitor attraction itself isn't my cup of tea, and so I took the path to the East of the visitor complex to get passed it as quickly as possible and onto the beautiful coastline beyond. Others will be tempted to go down to see The Longships I'm sure. Its a great view but not a place to linger. Get through it and enjoy the remainder of the route to Porthcurno. If you do want to stop at a visitor attraction, try The Minack Open Air Theatre-really interesting but you may have to pre book?
Buses are available between St Just-Penzance and also Porthcurno-Penzance.
I would highly recommend this route.
