6. Bedruthen, Cornwall

Bedruthen Steps (which actually refers to the rock stacks along the beach, rather than the killer steps leading down to the beach from the cliff top!!) is one of THOSE beaches.  A bit special 🙂

The 1st time we visited I could barely lift my legs for a few days after negotiating those steps!  I can manage them better now 🙂  (Our last visit was in August last year)

At the top of the cliff there are a couple of car parks available (1 of them a National Trust car park with a tea room, shop and toilets available) – it’s probably a 5-10 minute walk from here to the beach.

Once on the beach there are no facilities, but there are caves to discover and rocks to climb!  It is just breath-taking – but you must be extra careful of the tides here as it is VERY easy to get cut off.  In fact I have spotted rescues on TV featuring the area!

However, there are plenty of points of information giving very clear information on the tides.
