Off the Atlantic Highway near Newquay
Dubbed Britain’s equivalent of Australia’s Twelve Apostles, Bedruthan Steps is home to a staggering, mussel-clad rock stacks that rise from a stunning beach just north of Newquay. Admire the sheer magnificence of these granite giants from the South West Coast Path, that wraps around the cliffs to Park Head, or dare the knee-wobbling descent down 140-something steps (not to mention the calf-grinding climb back up) to the wild, Atlantic-lashed sands. Only accessible at low tide, Bedruthan Steps beach is dog-friendly and rarely attracts the crowds. There is a National Trust café and car park at the top of the cliff path (signposted Carnewas). The beach staircase is closed from November–March.
