St Ives by Coastal Path
There is no better way to travel to St Ives from The Gannet than to walk along the stunning South West Coast Path. This very gentle stroll travels above the railway line, with spectacular views over St Ives Bay. You'll forget that you're still in the UK as you marvel at the turquoise waters below. Did you know that the South West Coast Path ranks alongside New Zealand’s Milford Track, Chile’s Torres del Paine trek and Alaska’s Chilkoot Trail as one of the world’s most awe-inspiring hikes, according to Lonely Planet?
