From Penhale, you can walk across fields to reach the public footpaths. There are several footpaths and walks criss-crossing the headland and many more locally. These range from walking the coastal path, alongside the river, through woods and villages.
It was around the Fowey area that Daphne du Maurier was inspired to write several of her novels. Fowey is an ancient town with a history to match. Walking the narrow streets, you can imagine what it might have been in times past, before roads were tarmacked, before the motor car and when the port was busy with tall, masted ships.
Polkerris, 1 ¼ miles to the west is a small village which has a pub right on the beach. The beach is popular with both families and couples offering safe bathing and soft sand. Dogs are not allowed on Polkerris during the summer but further round the headland is a delightful small bay called Polridmouth where dogs are allowed. Here there are two small beaches, again with sand and safe bathing. There are endless rock pools and places to explore. From here you can stroll up hill to the day marker on Gribben Head. The day marker is now opened by the National Trust on a Sunday during the summer (when the flag is flying it is open) and you can climb right up to the top of this tower and enjoy the breathtaking views all around.
