Fishing holidays in Cornwall are one of the most enjoyable experiences you could have while you’re relaxing. After all, who doesn’t like a spot of fishing? Head out on the Atlantic waters with your local guide who can tell you all about the types of fish in the area as well as how best to reel them in. Not only that, but you can really get a feel for the fishing industry – a way of life that has sustained the area for hundreds of years.
Kicking Back In The Sand
Cornwall is known for its luscious beaches and one of the best is in the heart of St Ives, known as Porthmeor. A huge stretch of beautiful, clean sand runs along the shorefront filled with shops, restaurants and more, allowing people the opportunity to stroll along and admire the beach from afar or find their very own spot of private sand to enjoy. Get there early on gorgeous days to stake your claim to a spot – it’s a popular beach.
Top Places To Visit
If you or the kids like all manner of sea life, wait until the tide is out and then head down to Godrevy lighthouse area for a hand at some rockpooling. It’s a great way to spend a couple of hours and views from the car park at the top of the hill are stunning offering great views of the lighthouse as well as St Ives across the bay. Surfers like the area due to the high waves, and you can rub elbows with them at some of the nearby cafes. Another great spot is Sennen Cove, a bit further along from Land’s End. It’s know for its intense crashing waves during stormy weather, so beware!
