Cornwall's Beaches - Perranuthnoe

Hello everyone!

Despite spending my entire Christmas in Cornwall revising for my exams (which are now over), I did spend a lot of time on the beach. 

Despite the wind, Cornwall has the most beautiful beaches and having a dog in the family means many excuses to visit a beach every day. 

Newquay, Falmouth and St. Ives are amongst the most popular places to visit in Cornwall and of course, there's no questioning why! However, there is a hidden gem so close to St. Ives that visitors should take advantage of. 

I introduce you to .... Perranuthoe. 

Yes I know I sound like I have just discovered this town that no one has been to before, but in the 7 years I have lived in Cornwall I never came to this beach until last year. 

Boy, did I fall in love with this beach. With great panoramic views, breeze from the Atlantic Ocean and close proximity to Marazion and other towns, it's the perfect beach for an escape.

Popular with surfers and locals alike, you can find a variety of people enjoying the sandy and shingle landscape. A piece of advice, make sure you visit when it is low tide because it is VERY difficult to get down to the beach via the rocks. (It's a great adventure if your like me and not an outdoors person at all).

One of the best things about this beach is The Cabin, a cafĂ© right on the doorstep of the beach. As well as having a great view of the surf, they serve the most incredible food. I recommend the hot chocolate and full English breakfast... to be honest its all good. A family favourite! 

Parking is relatively easy if you can get to the car park and get a space before anyone else does. It is open all year round and times where no staff are there, there is an honesty box for you to pay for the time you park there (the Cornish are lovely and trusting!)

Dogs ARE allowed on the beach, but except between the 1st of May and 30th of September. (Other beaches work this way and some do not).

Postcode to put in your Satnav: TR20 9LZ. Lets face it, Cornish roads can be a pain!

There are lifeguards there from 10am-6pm between the dates of 8th July and 3rd of September.

A short post today but I had to share one of the hidden gems in Cornwall, I have way too many photos to share all of them because I'm a bit too obsessed with how pretty this beach is! 

If you have a family trip or any kind of trip booked to Cornwall, make sure to visit this cute little town! If you haven't got a reason to visit, read my post and you will find one! 

Some exciting news, Wednesday 24th of January I am off to Amsterdam with my best friend and I am back in Barcelona for a few days in February so lots of exciting things to share with you all!

Hope 2018 is treating you all well!
