Bedruthan Steps

Bedruthan Steps beachThis National Trust area is quite dramatic with massive slate outcrops jutting high out of the sand and fabulous cliff views that stretch across Bedruthan beach with over a mile of sand at low tide.

Legend has it that the rocks were placed by a giant named Bedruthan, who used them as stepping stones - to dramatic effect whether you believe it or not

The Trust has rebuilt the cliff staircase to the beach but be aware of the risk of being cut off by the high tide.

The Stair case is closed though the winter from the 1st November and opens on the 1st March but you are still able to walk across the top of the headland and enjoy the view of the beach below.Bedruthan beach at low tide
