ATTRACTIONS IN SOUTH CORNWALL

A land of contrasts and surprises

CORNWALL ATTRACTIONS

Things to do in South Cornwall

Softer and calmer (and more tropical) than Cornwall’s north coast, there’s a different side to South Cornwall to discover at every turn, with rolling waves and mile-wide sandy beaches make Cornwall’s coastline a firm favourite with everyone from surfers to sunbathers, families and food lovers. From the Clowance Estate you’re spoilt for choice: walk along towering clifftops with spectacular views or explore hills that roll gently down to sandy coves and bays.  Find wooded river valleys and estuaries that are perfect for sailing, like at Daphne Du Maurier’s beloved Fowey. Wander around whitewashed fishing villages and harbour towns and exotic gardens. Why not head inland and cycle your way around a host of pretty villages and market towns? If that’s not different enough, there’s Falmouth’s art gallery. Or the National Boat Museum… you could even find yourself in the rainforest at the Eden Project.
