Whitsands is on the Southwest coastal path. To follow the path towards Rame Head, go to the top of the cliff past the café and join the path to your right. The path can be quite steep in places and walking boots are recommended. The path goes past Polhawn and follows the coast to Rame Head where there is St Michaels’s Chapel, which is said to be on the site of an earlier Celtic hermitage. The current chapel dates from the late 1300s and was also used as an early lighthouse, the light being maintained by hermits.sThere are fantastic views across Whitsand Bay and over to Devon. The path then continues to Queen Adelaide’s Chapel, Cawsand and Kingsand, two pretty adjoining fishing villages – a good place to stop for lunch or a swim. Alternatively you can enjoy a scenic ferry ride into Plymouth, where it stops near the Pilgrims Steps on the Barbican. However you can continue on through Mount Edgcumbe Park and enjoy the scenery and if you are lucky you can spot deer. Dogs are allowed but have to be on a leash. Once you have reached Cremyll, you can have refreshments in the Orangery which overlooks the Italian Garden, or sit outside the Mount Edgcumbe Arms and watch the boats and ships going up and down the Tamar. If you don’t fancy walking back, there is a good bus service which will drop you back from where you started at Tregonhawke.
