Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps is a stretch of coastline located on the north Cornish coast between Padstow and Newquay. Sadly, the steps to the beach are currently closed following a rock fall, making them too dangerous to use. While the National Trust are working on the infrastructure, it is not advised to find alternative access to the beach.
One of Cornwall’s most dramatic beaches, to most peoples’ amazement it gets its name from the huge slate outcrops which are scattered along the beach, and not the sizeable number of steps you need to go down to access the beach.
However, while you can’t step foot on the beach, the viewing point at National-Trust owned Carnewas has spectacular cliff-top view of the sea stacks stretching across Bedruthan beach.
