Beyond Paradise - the Cornish Connection

When looking for a British alternative to Guadeloupe, it’s no surprise that you’d end up in Cornwall.

Following the end of ITV’s ‘Doc Martin’, filmed in the quaint fishing town of Port Isaac, your weekly dose of Cornwall will be back on your screens with the BBC’s new drama, ‘Beyond Paradise’.

This time, the south coast will take centre stage, showcasing the beautiful seaside town of Looe.

Kris Marshall reprises his role as Detective Humphrey Goodman, following his exit from the popular show ‘Death in Paradise’ back in 2017.

The detective left the Caribbean with his now-fiance for a life in the fictional town of Shipton Abbott. Whilst the story is said to be set in Devon, those crystal blue waters and golden sands give away the fact that part of the show was filmed in Cornwall.

The story begins in the coastal town of Looe in South-East Cornwall. The town remains a working fishing port that attracts visitors all year round. Watch the sunset on the Quay as the boats roll in, then tuck into award-winning fish and chips or sample the best catch at local restaurants.

In the daytime, little ones can go crabbing on the quayside or go rambling through rockpools with the Looe Marine Conservation Group. Or, try your own hand at fishing and take a trip out to see what you can catch.
