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.
• “Beach” Restaurant in Sennen Cove (01736 871191) – great food out on the terrace at lunch and inside
in the evenings.
• 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)
• Unexpected visitors – we have spotted dolphins, basking sharks and there are many rare birds!
