Discover a different Beach?

Have you been going to the same beach for years, why not check out our Visit Cornwall Beach Guide and find somewhere new to show off that tan? There's even some hidden gems on there, but don't tell everybody. For those with dogs we have updated all the info as to which beaches you can take dogs on.

Let's Dance!

It's festival time around the country, and here in Cornwall there's a few to choose from. The month kicks off with the Rock Oyster Festival at Wadebridge, alongside the Camel Estuary and finishes with a 'party in a field' with North Cornwall's Leopalloza Festival. Along the way, there's Morcheeba at Lusty Glaze, Paloma Faith at the Wyldes and a whole host of colour and sounds at Tropical Pressure. For those who want a festival with a little bit extra, the Port Eliot Festival at St Germans draws an unmatchable collection of artists, musicians, writers, comedians, performers, thinkers, makers, protagonists, agitators and scribblers to one of the most beautiful corners of the country.
