Holidays down to the beautiful region of the South West will conjure up visions of family holidays from our childhood or a holiday cottage in Cornwall or cottages in Devon. The county of Cornwall is still a popular holiday destination for many visitors and in particular families and their children, due to good travel links, family friendly accommodation, family orientated attractions and the many blue flag beaches throughout the Cornish region.

Cornwall has a wealth of beautiful beaches of all shapes and sizes, whilst offering some of the most breathtaking scenery to be found anywhere in the UK. The Cornish peninsula stretches out into the Atlantic Ocean, with its well known and unique attraction of Lands End being home to one of the most visited places in the British Isles.

Here we have highlighted a guide to a selection of some of Cornwall’s particularly beautiful coastal locations and which are often key places to visit for many people on holiday in this region, and are always worth adding your holiday itinerary.

The coastal village of Tintagel is one of the most talked about places in Cornwall, as Tintagel is often associated with the legend of King Arthur. This small village which overlooks the coast is annually visited by many people from all over the world, as most visitors want to see the remains of the ancient Tintagel Castle which looks out to sea.

The picture postcard seaside town of St. Ives one of the most visited seaside locations in Cornwall. St. Ives is still an active fishing port, but has a lovely family friendly harbour beach and at low tide is an ideal spot to sit and enjoy the sun and sand with your family, whilst indulging in a local Cornish ice cream. Away from the beach you can explore the quaint narrow streets or visit the town’s own prestigious gallery, the Tate St. Ives.
