Just back from a weekend in lovely Cornwall and here are our top 5 things to do when you visit!
5. Perranporth Beach – Miles of golden sand, lovely turquoise water… what more can you ask for??!
Great place to snorkel, surf or splash about, however the water was too cold for us to even bother doing any of that 🙂 I must say though that I enjoyed walking on the beach and food-wise, feeling peckish?? then head over to The Cornish Pasty Cafe, located very close to the beach
This shop does not look like much on the outside however, they serve amazing hand-made pasties to-go with 5 different fillings. These were hands down ‘the best’ pasties we’ve had – among all the others we tried during our trip 🙂 Definitely recommend!!
4. Visit St. Ives – enjoy the lovely sights from the harbor or walk around town as there a loads of cafes, pubs and shops with quirky delights! Explore on feet 🙂 as parking a huge issue in this town.
I definitely recommend eating at The Cornish Deli. We thoroughly enjoyed the massive scones here (plain & fruit ones!) and I also had a Beetroot & Goat’s Cheese salad as well which I loved 😉
3. Land’s End – Keen on walking? Then try the coastal walk and take in the fresh air with the most amazing views of the ocean from the the cliff tops, we spent a few hours walking one of the paths here
There are many short walking paths around, just make sure you are wearing comfortable walking shoes & a warm jacket!
2.Minack Theatre – A trip to Cornwall is not complete without visiting the breathtaking Minack Theatre, carved into the granite cliff this is the famous open-air theater where regular performances take place.
If you can’t make it to a play then just visit to have a look at least
The direct view of the ocean is priceless! There is something else you just have to visit for – there is a little cafe at the theater that serve the best cream teas we have ever had!! Don’t miss out, you’ll be sorry 🙂
1. Lizard Point – This is hands down the best place for views! It was my favorite part of this trip as we got to just sit down on top of the cliff and take in the mesmerizing views, sounds of the waves with the gentle breeze caressing us every now and then
There is a small cafe here that allows you to bring your own wine too… Recommend getting an ice cream cone when you are here & just chilling 🙂
Overall the weather was nice and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!!
We stayed at the Riviere Sands Holiday Park It was clean, convenient & low on cost as we were able to cook one meal a day (being a group of 4). Nice place, check it out if you are planning a visit sometime!
I recommend driving around as you would save a lot of time & money, there are buses and other modes of public transport that you can use as well although it may mean too much effort…
Note: These pictures taken during our trip are to please your senses 😉 Hope it gave you a real taste of Cornwall!
