Why I Love Cornwall

St Ives Cornwall

Cornwall is my favourite place to travel, particularly in the summer time. There are so many things to do in Cornwall that I decided to make just a short guide about what you can do there. So enjoy reading about why I absolutely love this gorgeous place.

Go on brewery tour

Cornish ale is famous the world over, so why not go on a brewery tour in Cornwall at one of the many breweries there. I personally like going to the St Austell Brewery every time I am there and it has been in operation for over 150 years! There really is nothing better than sampling all the beer you could imagine and a huge variety of different kinds. I always find it interesting, because there is always something new and it never gets old.

Go surfing

Surfing is one of the main attractions of Cornwall and this is due to the amazing beaches there. You probably never considered that you could surf in the England, but it is indeed possible in many parts of Cornwall. I personally enjoy heading to Gwithian beach to surf (or at least attempt to surf), especially since it is a little tamer than some of the other beaches and is much better for a beginner like me. If you are looking for a bit more of a challenge then head to Godrevy, but be sure to stay safe.

The scenery

We already talked about surfing and the beaches of Cornwall, but there is simply more to it than this. The scenery overall is just amazing and this is mainly due to Cornwall’s coast, which is dotted with cove beaches, large beaches and dramatic cliffs that lie above the water. I really enjoy the sheer beauty of Cornwall’s coastline and it really keeps me coming back year after year.

Go walking

As I said, I really enjoy the Cornwall coastline and it is absolutely the perfect place to go walking. It is amazing to walk on ancient paths and to see the remnants of Cornwall’s mining, fishing and farming past. The best thing is of course coming back at different times of the year to the same walks and seeing the dramatic difference. Of all the walks in Cornwall, I really enjoy walking around Lizard Point, which actually forms. The views are just stunning and it is also great to make your way to the nearby Kynance Cove, which is an extremely pretty and quiet beach with the clearest aqua water that you can imagine.
