If you follow the harbour around towards the tourist information centre there are some steps on the left which will lead you up to a path. This path will take you out and around the headlands.
It will lead you up passed the War Memorial to St George's Cove and further on to Hawker's Cove.
Along the way you will see some of Britain's most lovely coastal scenery.
Also has great views back onto Padstow.
When you are in Padstow it sure is worth to walk along the coast and enjoy the views there. When you are at the harbour, facing the sea, walk to the left. Follow the road along the cafe and the giftshops. There you will find a path along the coast. I always enjoyed walking there, watching the sea. You can see the beach at the other side of the sea, and see Brey Hill.
