Details for South Cornwall Coast

The South Cornish Coast is bordered by the English Channel and the Celtic Sea and has a wonderfully temperate climate. The coast is littered with small secluded coves and sheltered tidal inlets and supports a range of sub tropical trees and shrubs, which is why it is known as the Cornish Riviera. Most of the coves are historically fishing villages, some with harbours, and all surrounded by rows of tiny fishermenâ??s cottages which cluster around the rocky headlands.

Visitors to the area can see dozens of colourful fishing boats and a wide range of sea going crafts, many of which take pleasure cruises around the coast. If you enjoy a spot of fishing there are also endless charter companies offering sea fishing trips for individuals or groups. The stunning Roseland Peninsula has a number of picturesque towns and villages and a host of tranquil, sheltered beaches to explore, hidden from view and offering the perfect place to relax and take in the delightful scenery.

No trip to Cornwall would be complete without a visit to the amazing Eden Project. With a vast range of things to see and do this ecologically important attraction brings visitors from around the world to marvel at the displays and interactive exhibits.

The south coast is also the home of the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, with its impressive array of exhibits, galleries and observatory. Teeming with history this coast offers lots for visitors to see and do, with castles, mines and museums a plenty.

Lovers of the great outdoors can walk the miles of the South Cornwall Coast path and enjoy the exhilarating sea air whilst observing the vast and diverse wildlife of the area, much of which is owned and managed by the National Trust.
