When staying in Newquay there are many routes you can enjoy without taking the car! Why not take the foot ferry across the Gannel Estuary. Spot the abundance of wildlife on route including wading birds, salmon, bass and trout, then continue your walk onto Crantock.
Our favourite springtime walk includes the scenic stroll from Crantock and along the coastal path to Polly Joke. This route takes walkers past Chick Rock, where seals are sometimes spotted playing in the waves. Then onto the poppy-filled headland of Polly Joke.
