Beaches and Coast


Cornwall is renowned for its impressive 296 miles of coastline to walk and explore. The North Coast is breath-taking in all seasons: Rugged cliffs tower above sandy beaches stretching to the horizon.

The magnificent Atlantic waves are a magnet for intrepid surfers and water sports enthusiasts, as well as hikers and dog walkers.

The secluded coves between the rolling hills along the comparatively sheltered South Coast offer gentler waters for swimming, reading and coastal ambles.

The Cornish coast is studded with picturesque fishing villages, providing great places to spend the day exploring and sampling delicious pasties, cream teas or locally caught seafood.
