Trefusis Headland - Sponsored by Falmouth and District Hotels Association

From 21 October 2011

Sponsored by Falmouth and District Hotels Association. A gentle walk through the picturesque villages of Flushing and Mylor.


When you arrive in Flushing take some time to enjoy the historic fishing village, it's two pubs and the Quayside Restaurant before heading towards Mylor by following the coast.

After you round Trefusis Point look out for the cave and steps cut into the stone foreshore. Both were used to transfer contraband goods ashore with the cave marking the entrance to an old tunnel that led up to the cellars of the estate house on the hill where the goods were stored.

Once in Mylor Harbour you can enjoy a drink in Castaways or in the cafe. St Mylor Church is a two minute walk away from the harbour and boasts one of the oldest Celtic crosses in the country.

You can catch the Falmouth Water Taxi back to Flushing or return the way you came.


2/4 miles and approximately 3 hours.
