The St Austell Discover Map covers the St Austell Bay area from the traditional fishing port of Mevagissey to the thriving sailing and boating centre of Fowey. Discover this wonderful coastline by exploring the coastal footpaths, take the bus to visit pretty villages such as Pentewan. Travel by train or bus to Par which is home to a local nature reserve well known for its long sandy beach, dunes and birdlife, or take a walk onto the two striking headlands owned by the National Trust; the Gribbin to the east or the Black Head to the west of the town.
If you want to discover more about the hinterland of St Austell Bay, there are the Clay Trails that allow you to explore the rugged clay district which has seen huge changes to the environment in the planting of a million trees creating rich habitats for wildlife. Or take a bus or train to St Blazey and walk the footpath through the wooded Luxulyan valley and see the famous Treffry Aquaduct.
