Cornwall and its coastline

With so much to see and do in Cornwall you will probably not
want to miss out on a thing! Although you wont be able to visit
every single attraction in just one visit we have provided a
summary of the best that Cornwall has to offer. In Cornwall you
will find some of the best beaches in the country, a wealth of
historic sites, opportunities for sailing and leisure pusuits and of
course with its extensive coastline supeb coastal walks along the
Coastal Footpath. For young children there are numerous quality
theme parks and similar venues.

South coast of Cornwall
This is usually referred to as the Riviera Coast, a calmer coast
shielded from the Atlantic waves with sheltered fishing villages
and bays. A favourite with sailing enthusiasts having prominent
creeks and estuaries, particularly at the Helford Estuary, Fowey
river and the Tamar Estuary at Plymouth.

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
coastal walks 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.

West Coast of Cornwall

The furthest part of Cornwall with Lands End being the most
southerly tip. A short drive inland from Lands End is Penzance
with St Michaels Mount, a small island fortress well worth a visit.
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.
