Cornwall has the largest coastline of any area in England – that’s almost 300 miles of coastline, nine river estuaries and about 300 beaches. We have awns, gugs, inlets, coves, estuaries, beaches, strands, cliffs, headlands, points, islets and islands.
There are great wide areas of golden sand, miles of sand dunes, hidden coves, famous spots and infamous places.
You can paddle in warm sand pools; examine clear salt water rock pools; explore it, amble it and climb it. Fish from it or on it, dive beneath, skim across the top, paddle, splash and sometimes just stand and look in fascinated awe.
