There is an excellent circular walk with great views of the harbour and Falmouth, from Tregew Vean, through the village, past two beaches and around Trefusis headland to Mylor Harbour. Here one can have a coffee, lunch or tea at the café or Castaways Tapos bar. The walk is continued past historic Mylor Church, up the hill and back towards Flushing. The distance is about 3 miles.
Within a twenty minute drive is the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, the beautiful Helford estuary, and Trebah and Trelissick gardens. By foot, Falmouth is a five minute boat trip across the harbour by the Flushing Ferry. Sandy beaches can be found on the far side of Falmouth and small town beaches also in Flushing.
From Truro take the A39 towards Falmouth. You pass Carnon Downs, Devoran and Perran-ar-worthal. About 1 mile after Perran-ar-Worthal you come to Treluswell Cross roundabout.
