St Anthony Head

Explore this spectacular headland and lighthouse while you’re visiting the Roseland.

Just lace up your walking boots, grab a picnic and make sure you’ve got your sense of adventure in tow.

St Anthony Head is at the very tip of the Roseland Peninsula and a ‘must visit.’

St Anthony Head guards the entrance to Falmouth Harbour and gives you fantastic views over to the Lizard Peninsula. It’s a lovely stroll along the South West Coast Path to get there which can be done from a National Trust Car Park nearby.

Alternatively, head to St Mawes and in the summer you can hop on the Place Ferry and enjoy a walk around the headland. There are two secluded beaches on the way, Great and Little Molunan, that are both worth a visit.

Keep your eyes peeled for seabirds of all types. If you’re really lucky you may even catch a glimpse of the peregrine falcons which nest in the cliffs; visit the bird hide near the lighthouse for an even closer look.
