From Polzeath, the coastal path skirts New Polzeath high on the cliffs overlooking Hayle Bay, offering properties with easy access to the beach and many with splendid views of the coastline. The path continues up through the area of outstanding beauty that is the National Trust land at Pentire to Pentire Point. In the springtime it is an extensive carpet of wild flowers, with its network of footpaths giving stunning views of the Atlantic. There is a wide variety of bird life all along the coast towards 'The Rumps', where gannets and cormorants can be seen fishing, and occasionally grey seals and dolphins have been sighted.
