The best family holidays are often the simple ones.
The ones where you eat ice cream on the beach, play games as a family and laugh in the rain when it arrives at the least-expected moment. The best things in life are free, so why not try some of these cheap family activities this summer?
So far this summer we’ve spotted plenty of jelly fish and even a rare tuna fish right here in Cornwall! Dig out your nets, gather your buckets – it’s time to go exploring.
Tree climbing seems to be in every adventurous child’s DNA. Climb a tree in Cornwall, and you may even spot the sea!
The age old tradition of wave jumping still hasn’t lost its charm. Why not have a competition and see who can jump the highest wave?
Cornwall’s beaches have the perfect balance of space and wind for a successful kite session. Can you get yours soaring?
…and set it free. Our waters are teeming with wildlife – we love saying hello to our underwater friends and watching them as they swim off again. How many different species can you spot?
Grab your bike and a packed lunch and embark into the outdoors. Cornwall has plenty of designated cycling routes, our favourites are the Camel Trail in Padstow and the Mineral Tramways route in Devoran.
Who knows what mysteries lie within our ancient caves in Cornwall? Make sure the tide isn’t coming in and tread carefully…you may find a hidden treasure or two!
On a clear night there is no better place to gaze at the stars than Cornwall. Our minimal light pollution make it the perfect spot to find constellations painted across the sky.
