First time here, though I have stopped often along the North Cliffs as there is a rather pleasant and flat walk giving you marvellous open sea views and the added bonus of wild flowers. I especially like it in late summer for the different shades of heather that bloom along this coastal path.
Now though, in May, it is the time for Sea Pinks / Thrift / Sea Thrift (Armeria maritima) which grows all along these cliffs. Mixed in are the yellow common kidney vetch / woundwort (Anthyllis vulneraria) with its woolly appearance and what is often mistaken for white bluebells, but are really three-cornered leeks that smell and taste like mild spring onions.
Basset’s Cove is opposite to the north entrance into Tehidy Country Park and the last beach before you arrive at Portreath on the north Cornish coast. I say beach, but looking at the precarious, meandering route down to it, which has been barricaded off because of landslips, I imagine the only way onto this strip of rocky/sandy beach is by kayak. Unless you are a seal.
There is a decent car park though and it must be a lovely spot in the summer for a picnic and to watch the sun set over the Celtic Sea.
