Things to see and do on the Roseland

Porthcurnick beach, Roseland, Cornwall

Here are some of the things to enjoy around Roseland.

Walk the Roseland

The unspoilt Roseland is great walking country. The South West Coast Path can be accessed by a network of other footpaths that head inland, to create delightful circular walks.

What's on nearby

We run various events from opening the magazine at St Anthony Head, guided tours of the Veryan Royal Observer Corps post, to beach cleans and apple days. Watch our beautiful short film to inspire you and find out more about what we do along the coast.


In late spring and summer look out for Earl, the vintage Citroen van, serving specially blended teas and delicious baking in the courtyard at Porth Farm (next to Towan beach). Keep up to date with owners Seth and Jodi and The Thirstea Company.

Look out for...

  • The panoramic views from St Anthony Head - from here you can look up the Carrick Roads on your right, with the sister castles of St Mawes and Pendennis nodding to each other over the water, and beyond Falmouth, down to your left you can see the Helford passage, with the Lizard just beyond
  • Curlew calls echoing across the creeks - the Roseland is a great birding spot
  • Sunrises over the sea while you stroll along Towan beach in the early mornings
  • Exploring rockpools at low tide at Porthcurnick beach - why not post photos of your discoveries on our Facebook pages
  • Carne Beacon, one of Cornwall's largest Bronze Age barrows, reputedly the final resting place of the Cornish King Gereint
  • Peregrine falcons high up above your head at St Anthony
  • How many butterflies you can spot along the cliff paths?
