South Cornwall, from Falmouth to the Devon border, is an area of sheltered coves,
fishing harbours, tidal creeks and several excellent holiday resorts.
This is the most developed area of Cornwall, offering more facilities - but fewer
opportunities to escape the crowds and find tranquility. However, it is still far less
developed than most other coastal regions in Southern England, and outside the main
holiday season you can easily find privacy and solitude here.
South Cornwall boasts several picture-postcard fishing villages - all with long histories
and fascinating tales to tell - mostly of smuggling and piracy.
The walking here is generally less strenuous than in the north, and South Cornwall is
a great place for boat trips, both along the sheltered coast, and inland along the rivers
and tidal creeks. This is Daphne Du Maurier country - most of her novels were set in
the villages, rivers and creeks of South Cornwall, and there are several companies
here offering guided Daphne Du Maurier walks and boat trips.
South Cornwall is also home to The Eden Project, and several other excellent
attractions. Click the links on the left of this page for more information.
