A relaxing but exhilarating way to tour the surrounding area is to jump aboard the scenic railway, it runs beside the beaches with breath-taking views all the way, stop at Carbis Bay, this secluded beach is a slice of paradise with azure waters lapping onto its golden shores, a healthy option is to venture out along the cliffside South West Coast Path, which follows a similar route to the train and gives you a real chance to experience Cornwall’s wild fauna, flora, and wildlife.
