Beaches to explore in Cornwall

There are over 300 beaches in Cornwall for you to explore whilst holidaying at Lanyon Manor, some of the best are in close proximity of your holiday accommodation, for example the glorious beaches of Porthmeor & Carbis Bay near St. Ives and the huge stretches of golden sand at Godrevy and Portreath on the North Cornish coast.

Depending on the time of year you visit, there are festivals and events which are definitely worth a visit, if you are a keen surfer then head to Newquay in August for the Newquay’s Boardmasters – a local music and surfing festival.

During the summer the beaches are full of people soaking up the summer sun and enjoying the many sports on offer. If you fancy a bit of adrenalin fuelled fun then why not try surfing, kite surfing or windsurfing. If you prefer walking then walking along the many cliff paths taking in the wonderful views may be more your cup of tea. For those that enjoy nature and creepy crawly’s why not do a spot of rock pooling, please respect the habitat and if you find something interesting always remember to put it back in its house again carefully.

The beaches empty in winter...well there are still the surfers and kite surfers that enjoy the great outdoors in all weathers. Other’s prefer to take a brisk walk and then enjoy a hot chocolate or something stronger in a beach cafe. The Watering Hole at Perranporth has a great beach vibe and the Blue Bar at Porthtowan Beach is where all the cool surfers hang out! Both are well worth a visit.

So whatever you’re choice of holiday and if you like beaches at anytime of year then we believe you will experience it at Lanyon Manor the perfect Cornish holiday destination.
