Carbis Bay, on the back road to St Ives (Touristy, privately owned and expensive to park) or Porth Kidney (big and quieter) which is in Lelant, are your nearest beaches. Hayle Towans is another beach nearby but approached from Hayle itself. Further up from Hayle are Gwinver and Godrevy beaches. The north coast road – either from St Ives to St Just (westward) or from Hayle to Portreath (eastward) give spectacular views of the coastline, but there aren’t any beaches here.
We like to go to Cape Cornwall and the Cot Valley near St Just (both rocky coves with stunning Atlantic views), Porthcurno and Porthgwarra, which are on the way to Land’s End, and Sennan. Next to Porthcurno is the Minack Theatre – carved into the cliffside. Mousehole is a lovely traditional Cornish fishing village, with a small beach in the harbour, and several rocky beaches on either side: Do visit the Four TTTTs here for a traditional cream tea!
St Michael’s Mount- an island reached by a causeway at low-tide and by boat when the tide is in - is well worth a visit from Marazion, which also has a good beach. Further around Mount’s Bay towards Helston is Praa Sands another good beach. Keep going along this southern coast and you’ll come to Rinsey Beach and Prussia Cove. Also near Helston is Flambards theme park. Paradise Park is in Hayle – it’s a wildlife park but it also has an indoor children’s play area. Truro is the closest town with the bigger high street shops and is worth a wander on a rainy day. It’s a good tip to go to the Eden Project near St Austell earlier in the week as most people leave it till the end of their stay and it gets very busy. Heading slightly further south, to the Lizard, Mullion Cove and Kynance Cove are well worth a visit for the spectacular scenery. Cadgwith and Coverack are also lovely, small coastal villages.
