Top Cornish Adventures Spots
The sun is shining so we’re filling our backpacks with picnics, towels and sunscreen and heading off on some outdoor adventures! There are plenty of Cornish adventure spots so the team thought they’d share a few of their favourites with you…
Porthtowan Sea Pool
Just a short hop down the coast from our shop is one of Cornwall’s best kept secrets - Porthtowan Sea Pool! A glorious mermaid pool full of fresh sea water that gently warms throughout the day by the sun. As you walk onto the beach at low tide head towards the rocks on the right hand side. It’s well worth a bit of clambering to have your own private pool!
Brown Willy, Bodmin Moor
Climb to the top of Cornwall! A great hike that takes you to the highest point in Cornwall - 1,378 feet above sea level. You’ll be rewarded for your hard work with views out to sea and right up to Dartmoor. There are many circular routes that take in Brown Willy from different starting points on Bodmin Moor, just pop open a map and see how far you fancy trekking!
Ocean Sunsets & Stargazing
We’re so lucky in Cornwall to have some seriously beautiful spots to watch the sun set into the ocean and great dark skies for stargazing. We love Sennen Cove for watching the sky put on a show of stunning colours as the sun slowly dips into the horizon out at sea. Once it’s dark lie back on the sun warmed sand and gaze into the heavens. WIll you make a wish on a shooting star?
With such a long coastline Cornwall has had its fair share of shipwrecks over the years! They can be fascinating to seek out and to learn the history of and you usually get a good coastpath adventure too. Head to Lands End and follow the path towards Sennen to find one of our favourites - the wreck of the RMS Mulheim, a huge cargo vessel which was washed up on-shore in 2003.
