There is something magical about West Cornwall’s end-of-the-world beauty, wild coastline and windswept moors.
This is Cornwall at its unspoilt best, with hidden coves and vast sandy beaches just waiting to be explored.
Discover the bohemian, arty hubs of Penzance and St Ives, learn to surf at Sennen Cove or enjoy a traditional cream tea in picturesque Mousehole.
Walk the causeway and discover the castle atop St Michael’s Mount, swim in the turquoise water at Kynance Cove and uncover ancient Cornwall amongst the Neolithic stone circles on the moors. Journey to the most westerly point of the mainland UK at Land’s End or take in a performance at the atmospheric Minack Theatre, perched high on a cliff above the pounding Atlantic.
The climate here in west Cornwall means that sub-tropical gardens thrive, and wildlife is abundant. Basking sharks frequent these shores, and swimming with these marine giants is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
