Three Cornish Seaside Towns You Can’t Miss

England has many places of great beauty. Among them, the Cornish coast stands out , where very beautiful villages are located where there are dream beaches, even wild ones. It is an ideal destination for those who love the beach and the coast , but also nature because there are many trails through green areas on the coast. And what towns to see? The options are diverse. Here are some proposals.

St Yves

This town is considered the most bohemian in all of Cornwall because its streets are lined with studios , workshops and art galleries and it is populated by many painters, sculptors or writers. A cultural life that coexists with that of the fishermen .

As well as wandering through huddled two-story houses with colorful wooden windows and seeing its coastline, this town has many attractions like the branch of the Tate Gallery or Barbara Hepworth’s garden.

Port Isaac

The tour of the Cornish coast also takes us to Port Isaac, which is full of wineries and restaurants to taste different specialties such as mackerel, sardines or cod.

It is a town of alleys and colorful houses decorated with flowers , which make up almost a labyrinth. Here, in addition, is the Temple Bar alley, which has been listed in the Guinness Book of Records for being the narrowest street in the world.


Padstow is another must stop. This fishing village is located at the mouth of the Camel River, an area where you can see a beautiful landscape of dunes . In this town you can taste the most famous fish and chips from all over England by the hand of the British chef Rick Stein, who has four restaurants in this area.

In addition to seeing the work of fishermen and experiencing the Obby Oss festival (which takes place on the first day of May), this town is ideal for hiking or cycling . The most recommended is the Camel Trail , which connects Padstow with Wadebridge or Bodmin in a 30-kilometer route.
