Storm Watching Spots In Cornwall
Winter brings plenty of storms to Cornwall and we love to wrap up warm, brave the elements and watch nature's greatest show. The Schoose team have shared their best storm watching spots in Cornwall for the thrill-seekers out there...
Right at the foot of Cornwall is Cape Cornwall, a small headland jutting out into the sea with sweeping views across Sennen Bay and over to Land's End. This is where the Atlantic currents divide and when storms push in from the ocean, this is one of the first bits of land they hit, producing an awesome display.
Take a stroll along the prom in the wrong weather and you'll end up drenched by a wave and possibly covered in seaweed! When the tide is high waves often batter the prom, soaking unsuspecting walkers, throwing pebbles up on the pavement and splashing right over parked cars.
Our own village of Portreath is a great place to watch the waves and we often pop down after work on a winter's day and see the waves roll in. In recent years there have even been dramatic scenes with parts of the harbour wall and fisherman's hut washing away, so definitely be careful out there!
PorthlevenThis little harbour town has become famous for the dramatic photos of storms lashing the breakwater, clock tower and coastline over recent years.
If you go storm watching always be aware of the tides, don't get too close to the water and be careful at all times.
