The South Cornwall coast

Why visit the South coast of Cornwall?

From the windswept Coastwatch station at Rame Head in the East, to the tranquil scenery of the Helford River toward the West, the South coast of Cornwall is full of contrasts and plenty of surprises. Like a thick green carpet slung across the land, the hills roll down to the shoreline, with sandy coves and bays, where the sea is framed by whitewashed fishing villages, harbour towns and exotic sub-tropical gardens. The sheltered river estuaries are ideal for messing about in boats and inland you'll find a host of pretty villages and market towns. 

You'll find:

  • Spectaular coastline
  • Hidden coves and beaches
  • Wooded river valleys and estuaries
  • Fantastic sailing waters
  • Cliff top walks
  • Lush sub-tropical gardens
  • Harbour towns and villages
  • The twin castles of Pendennis and St Mawes
  • The Eden Project
  • The National Maritime Museum Cornwall

Places to visit include:

Kingsand and Cawsand, Whitsand Bay, Looe and Polperro, Fowey, Lostwithiel, Charlestown, St Austell, Mevagissey, Roseland Peninsula, St Mawes, Truro, Falmouth, Helford River.
