Brings you the best marine ecotourism experiences in Europe

Best known for its surf scene (one of Europe's top surf spots!), especially in Newquay, the beautiful golden/white sandy bays in the north coast are a true paradise for the more athlete (fantastic watersports options) and those nature lovers (many nature reserves nearby).

Enjoy a family holiday in Bude's golden beaches or a unique romantic retreat in the Bude natural sea pool, voted twice 'Best UK Coastal Resort' in the British Travel Awards. Take a walk or a challenging hike along the South West Coast Path or the beautiful Camel Cycle Trail, and keep an eye on those bottlenose dolphins and grey seals that may swim nearby! Visit the iconic Tintagel Castle ruins and the picturesque traditional fishing village of Port Isaac.

Lose yourself in the stunning scenery while you enjoy superb surfing in the hidden Mawgan Porth or Cornwall’s surfing capital, Newquay, or simply sample the breath-taking scenic coastline in St Agnes. Explore the fascinating Holywell Cave at gorgeous Holywell Bay Beach, and discover the many natural sea pools in Perranporth's stunning kilometric golden beaches.

Also known for its exquisite cuisine (i.e. the Cornish pasty), the north coast invites you to delight yourself with some of the best dishes made with fresh local products in Padstow, and even treat yourself to one of the many Michelin-star restaurants in the area.
