Stretching from the Devon border down to the Lizard Peninsula and Lands End, Cornwall is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the north and the English Channel to the south, with miles of extensive and rugged coastline, numerous sandy beaches and secluded coves.
With such an extensive coastline regularly experiencing rolling white water breakers, Cornwall is a mecca for surfing holidays. Many experienced surfers spend their summer months surfing the dramatic Cornish waves, however there are also numerous surf schools available with equipment for hire and offering surfing lessons for beginners.
The extensive coastline is also ideal for sea fishing where enthusiastic holiday makers can find plenty of ideal fishing marks, tackle shops and bait suppliers to facilitate a spot of relaxing beach or rock angling. Alternatively, dotted around the coast and usually based in the main harbours, there are many charter fishing boats offering deep sea fishing days with all tackle and bait provided.
The wonderful Cornish countryside is criss-crossed by footpaths, trails and cycle tracks making it ideal for holiday makers looking for either a walking, pony trekking or a cycling holiday.
In terms of food and drink Cornwall has plenty to offer and is a haven for foodies. Being surrounded by sea, there is an abundant supply of fresh salt water fish available, with many specilist fish restaurants including the world famous Rick Stein Fish Restaurant. A visit to Cornwall is not complete without sampling the equally famous Cornish Pasty, originally a convenience snack for Cornish lead miners, but now part of the staple diet of the locals. Of course what day out would be complete without a Cornish cream tea with lashings of Cornish clotted cream, home made jam and fresh baked scones. If you still have room then try some Cornish ice cream to round off the day.
