Bedruthan Steps

Bedruthan Steps

The story that Bedruthan Steps owes its name to a mythological giant called Bedruthan who used the rocks on the beach as stepping stones is a good one, but it appears to have been made up in the 1850s.

As well as the magnificent walks along the coast path, there is a cliff staircase down to the beach.

However, it is unsafe to bathe at any time and, of course there is always the risk of being cut off by the tide.

Anyway, if you ask me, it is probably at its best when the tide is in and the waves are breaking over the rocks.
