Here are a few of our favourites...

Watching for seals in the cove – one or two come in most days – if you can’t find them they may be hauled up on the rocks below the old coastguard look out, slightly along the coastal path towards Land’s End.
Swimming at Porthchapel Beach – a 15 minute walk along the coastal path towards Porthcurno. There is quite a steep climb down, but the beach is definitely worth it! It was recently rated one of the Top Ten Beaches in the UK by The Times. But, beware of swimming when the tide is going out, as the currents can be strong.
Walking to Land’s End – along the way take the left hand coastal path, which follows the cliff line, and you will find a blow hole (although it only really blows in winter). Also look out for Nanjizal Bay, another unspoilt cove.
The Minack Theatre – book early, take a picnic and wrap up warm! Always an experience, whatever is on.
Pasties from the shop in the cove, best enjoyed on the rocks!
Breakfast in the Apple Tree Café, near Land's End or at Little Bo Café Sennen Cove.
Visiting the Tate Gallery in St. Ives.
Wandering along the front at Sennen Cove, particularly visiting the lifeboat and the “Round House” gallery.
Fish and chips (if you are early you may get "catch of day") from 190 degrees West at Sennen by the Costcutter shop.
Sennen market (behind the school) 9am - 12 noon on TUESDAYS. Great bread and cakes, good meat and veg plus you can try Ruby June's curry sauces and fresh bhajis and Sarah's relishes and jams.
Two pubs with fantastic restaurants as part of the "Eat Drink Sleep" Group. Firstly the "Old Coastguard" in Mousehole on the Newlyn Road and also the “Gurnard's Head” pub near Zennor on the St. Ives road.
Day trip to the Scilly Isles – either by air from Land's End Airport or by boat (The Scillonian) from Penzance.
Unexpected visitors – we have spotted dolphins, basking sharks and there are many rare birds!
