Location and Surrounding Area
With so much to explore in the Falmouth area, you’ll have the best of Cornwall on your doorstep. Boat trips from Falmouth allow all manner of places to be explored on foot, from the fishing town of St Mawes to the quaint village of Flushing. Aspiring captains can hire boats from Custom House Quay and follow their own route around the Fal estuary and all it’s creeks and coves.
Falmouth has three beautiful beaches to enjoy, all a short walk from Coastguards Watch. Castle Beach is the closest, with a cafe and rockpools. Gyllyngvase Beach is the largest and enjoys a brilliant beachside restaurant and cafe along with golden sand. During the summer it is patrolled by RNLI lifeguards making for a safe spot to swim in the sea. Further along the coast path you’ll find Swanpool beach, with a watersports centre for hiring kayaks/paddleboards, instructor led days and some of the best ice-cream in town.
A short drive away is the Helford River, part of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The waters here are some of the purest in the country and are idyllic for wild swimming. This totally unspoilt area of Cornwall is charming in all seasons.
The South West Coast Path runs through Falmouth and can be joined from the seafront. Walks here will take you along the breath-taking coastline that makes Cornwall famous. Plenty of cafe’s, restaurants and country pubs line the way, for you to stop into for refreshment, or to plan the next part of the adventure.
After all your adventuring dine al-fresco on the balcony and unwind, or head into Falmouth and see why it’s reputation as a foodie hub in the south-west is so well deserved. You’ll find food for all tastes, from award-winning fish and chips to tapas and almost everything in-between.
