Things to do in Whitsand Bay

Visitors can enjoy an action packed holiday, visits to Looe and Plymouth, lots of quaint fishing villages, or a traditional British holiday on the lovely beaches.

-Rame Head is an historic site set on the steep cliffs overlooking the sea. There is evidence of buildings from as far back as the Iron Age and Bronze Age. See barrows, remnants of castles, dwellings and other fascinating sites. There is also a chapel that was dedicated to St Michael the Archangel dating from the medieval period.

-The Monkey Sanctuary is a fantastic conservatory, being the home to many a rescued primate from the horrors of the animal trade industry and abuse. It is an educational facility popular with visitors in Whitsand Bay holiday homes who enjoy the chance to get involved and see first-hand how a working sanctuary operates.

-The James Egan Layne Wreck is a popular site with scuba diving enthusiasts. Sinking in 1945, it’s a massive 7000 ton wreck that was hit by a German torpedo, and then towed to salvage most of its cargo. It sunk to a depth of almost 80m, making it one of the most popular wrecks to explore.

-Cawsand Bay is an historic fishing village on the Rame Peninsula. Once famous for a successful smuggling ring, it is now just a place of stunning natural beauty and a popular tourist attraction. It’s a magical little town, with lots of walks and little winding streets sweeping over 800 acres along the coast.

-Port Winkle Walks are a favourite way to see the breathtaking coastline at its most spectacular. The walk is approximately 4.5 miles and starts at Port Winkle, passing the Whitsand Battery and Freathy and ending up at the Whitsand Bay Holiday Park. Chill out at the Cliff Top Café for some cool refreshments after the two and a half hour walk.

Comfortable accommodation in fabulous location

5 of 5
We loved our short break at The Old Tea Hut. The hut itself is really rather spacious (there were only two of us, but it could easily accommodate six) with two double bedrooms and a sofa bed in one of the two sitting rooms, plus a conservatory looking out to sea. As for the location, wonderful. You really are right next to the sea. (One other small point: good wireless broadband.)

Cosy & Comfortable

4 of 5
Just the place for piece and quite especially for a couple, freindly bar staff right next door, only drawback is shops but full instructions are given to the nearest shop just 2 miles away which is only a 10min drive, lots of beaches to travel to and places to visit, the cottage itself very cosy with comfortable beds and an original log burning fire, will consider a return visit.

The perfect break!

5 of 5
Pen-y-Bryn is the ideal self-catering apartment for a stay in this area. It's well located, overlooking the town and with its own private parking which is a big plus in Looe. There's everything we needed (and plenty of other amenities such as washing machine, that we might have needed on a longer stay). The view from Pen-y-Bryn is spectacular, the property is exceptionally clean & comfortable and the welcome from Pat & Brian is very warm. Highly recommended! Chris & Lyn Howard, Tetbury
