Don’t Leave Cornwall Without Ticking These Boxes

Quite often, the best kinds of holidays are those when you do nothing at all. Simply kicking back, relaxing on your cozy cottage and letting your cares drift away is all the exploration and adventure some need when it comes to their vacations.Nevertheless, when visiting a holiday paradise like Cornwall, it would be quite the shame not to at least check out one or two of the totally unmissable sights and activities on offer. So if time is short or the will to explore is weak, be sure to tick at least one of the following boxes to avoid any regret later:

Surfing

You cannot go to Cornwall without getting wet – and what better way to get wet than with by launching yourself head-first into the big blue on your very own surfboard? It’s a well-known fact that surfing is so much more fun (and hilarious) when you don’t know what you’re doing, so no excuses…even if it’s your first time!

Marvelling at the Mount

As far as the most iconic sights of Cornwall go, none come more highly recommended than Saint Michael’s Mount. Almost eerie in its beauty and a genuine gem of the Cornish coast, it’s a uniquely enjoyable afternoon out for the whole family.

Relaxing on Crantock Beach

There may be dozens of beaches to bum-out on for a few hours, but none come more highly-recommended than Crantock Beach. Clean, quiet, well looked-after and easily accessible, it’s a far cry from some of the more crowded and noisy beaches you may be more familiar with. Avoid the peak sunny hours and use them instead for a family barbecue on your cottage.

Exploring Lost Gardens

Head over to St Austell and check out The Lost Gardens of Heligan – home to some of the most captivating and unique sculptures and natural treasures in the South West. And just for the record, the pasties here are awesome.

Fishing for Monsters

Last but not least, Cornwall as a whole offers visitors a near limitless array of deep sea fishing opportunities for pros, newcomers and families alike. There’s no better place to head for a chance of reeling in a monster or two – epic fun for adults and kids alike.
