Spectacular walks, secluded beaches and exceptional views
A spectacular coastline, combined with a lively working Cornish port, lends this area its unique character and charm.
There's a network of footpaths to discover, making the area great walking country, with the South West Coast Path offering sweeping views and a few hilly challenges.
Beaches and woodlands offer plenty of opportunities for families to explore, with a wealth of history, wildlife and watersport activities to try out.
If you need somewhere to stay, then look at our choice of holiday cottages around Pont, Lansallos and near Polruan, or why not camp at our site at Highertown Farm?
Celebrate the South East Cornwall coast this year with the Coastal Festival. We have 300 miles of coast in the South West to explore, with over 200 events and £1 million to raise (in order to care for the coast for just one year) and lots of way to get involved.
Take the South West Coast Path challenge this October.
Join in with one of the 10 mile organised walks or create your own challenge on a stretch of the South West Coast Path that you love.
Add your miles to the map and help raise funds to keep our footpaths well managed for future years.
