Blessed with 300 miles of coastline on both northern and southern shores, the Cornish coast really does have it all. The wild landscape and trendy vibe of Cornwall’s north coast attracts an eccentric mix of adrenaline seekers, artists and adventurous families. Whilst the consistent swell and large sandy beaches have made anywhere along Cornwall’s north coast a surfing mecca, arguably the most famous spot to catch some waves is Fistral beach in Newquay. Hire a board, enrol in a surf school or just join the party at the end of the day! If you are looking for something a bit more Bohemian head to the charming town of St Ives. When you are done with the surf, browse the contemporary art galleries and enjoy world class seascapes as you enjoy a sundowner in one of the hip bars.

Foodies and watersports enthusiasts should head further north to Padstow, Rock and Wadebridge. Learn to sail, try your hand at waterskiing, go diving, swim in stunning lagoons and go coasteering into sea caves. For the ultimate adventure have a go at kite surfing at nearby Daymer Bay. If you are looking for something a little less hairy, hop on board a sea kayak and discover sheltered beaches and pretty coves. After a day out on the water head to Padstow. Whether you are after a traditional Cornish pastry, an indulgent cream tea, fish and chips on the harbour or you want to dine out in style, you will not go hungry here. Home to some of the best seafood restaurants in the country, Padstow is a food lover’s paradise.

If you are looking for a slower pace of life, head to the white washed fishing villages on Cornwall’s southern coast. More sheltered than the northern shores, this idyllic stretch of coastline is famous for its tranquil hidden bays, bracing clifftop walks and iconic attractions. The white sand and turquoise seas at Kynance Cove is one of Cornwall’s most beautiful beaches. Explore the hidden caves and islands at low tide, or if you prefer to keep your feet on dry land, it’s a spectacular 2-mile stroll along the South West Coast path to England’s most southerly tip, Lizard Point.

For a traditional day out by the sea you can’t beat the small harbour town of Looe. The large sandy beach is perfect for paddling and sandcastles. At the end of the day the kids will love crabbing as you watch the fishing boats come and go from the quayside. If you are looking to escape the summer crowds and get off the beaten track, keen explorers should head along the coast to the beautiful sheltered cove at Lantic Bay. Not for the fainthearted, it is a steep walk down (and back up!), but you will be rewarded with a stunning beach which feels more like a secluded spot in the Mediterranean.

Nothing is more therapeutic than a holiday by the sea. Escape from reality as you listen to the waves gently lap against the shore in a secluded fisherman’s cottage or enjoy a luxury beach pad in one of the bustling harbour towns. Stay in a cosy bolthole for two, or bring the family, friends, your wetsuit and the dog and stay in one of our pet-friendly cottages in Cornwall. Our fantastic selection of Cornwall cottages to rent by the sea has something to suit everyone.
