South coast of Cornwall
This is usually referred to as the Riviera Coast, a calmer coast

and bays. A favourite with sailing enthusiasts having prominent
creeks and estuaries, particularly at the Helford Estuary, Fowey
river and the Tamar Estuary
North coast of Cornwall
A rugged coastline of towering cliffs and great surfing waves.
Newquay, Budeand other beaches along
this stretch of coastline
are a great favourite with surfers. Equally magnificent are the
with Crackington Haven (just below Bude) having
the highest and steepest cliff in Cornwall.
Popular along this
north coast are also Padstow, Portreath, Perranporth and of
course the great
facourite of them all, St Ives.

southerly tip. A short drive
inland from Lands End is Penzance
with St Michaels Mount, a small island fortress well worth
Moving further along the coast to the Lizard there are a
continuous number of
excellent beaches including huge expanses
of sands at Marazion and Porthleven and yet further
on at Mullion Cove.
