This walk follows the South West Coastal Path. As it is a national trail, it is well sign posted and easy to follow. I arrived at Boscastle on the 95 bus from Widemouth Bay.

 

From the bus stop I followed the SW Coast Path signs beside Boscastle harbour.

The island and new bridge come into view at Tintagel. So too do the crowds of people.
