Thanks to the easy accessibility of Cornwall and its wonderful surfing spots, we have become frequent visitors to these spots. 1. Trevone Bay Unlike other beaches where the waves can be unpredictable and thus dangerous for amateurs, Trevone Bay is exposed and have consistent waves. Still, it is only recommended during low tide and surfers have to watch out for the huge rocks.
Still, this is nothing like the popular Cornish beaches which can get packed
The Bodmin Beast Cycle Trail This 12-kilometer long trail is new and is for more experienced bikers, exactly as the name implies. You will need the skill to tackle the climbs and the speedy descents.

Goss Moor Cycle Trail This route is perfect if you love nature, which is a surprise given its history. Goss Moor used to be a motorist’s nightmare but thanks to the rerouting of the A30 and the new dual highway, it has been transported into a ride close to nature.

Here are some of the region’s most scenic driving routes. Boscastle to Bude This 24-kilometre stretch is, without a doubt, Cornwall’s most scenic drives.

This is the best route to get mesmerised by dramatic seascapes while getting one’s driving skills tested against curving clifftop roads. The best part of the journey is indulging in the best Cornish ice cream at Boscastle. The ice cream here is hand-churned, rich, creamy, and divine.

Perfect for newbies especially in calmer waters, the River Helford is always a favourite spot for those who would like to learn or even hone their skills in stand-up paddleboarding. The waters can be serene, much like that of a lake. But what is really amazing about the place is that it provides you an Instagrammable view of the Falmouth Bay coastline. Plus it's an amazing place to stay at nearby holiday cottages and vacation rentals in Helford or Falmouth. The river banks are lined with trees while the creeks that branch from the main body are also inviting for the more advanced paddlers. In low tide, one can easily sit on the paddleboard and start picking oysters below the water surface, although you’d have plenty of competitors in the herons that flock the field as well as oyster catchers hoping to take full advantage of the bounty.

If you are looking for a different adventure during your next Cornish holiday, you can track these down and marvel at how our ancestors from tens of thousands of years ago erected these stone monuments.
