Wildlife watching in Cornwall

With miles upon miles of unspoilt coastline and range of diverse habitats, Cornwall is one of the best places in the British Isles to see marine mammals, sharks and seabirds from the land and sea. But with dozens of places around Cornwall’s coast where you can spot wildlife in action, where are the best locations to get up close and personal with the giants from the deep, or the best time of year to go birdwatching or seal spotting?

A local's guide to Port Isaac

An enchanting little village on the rugged north coast of Cornwall, Port Isaac is home to Doc Martin, the endearingly named 'squeezy belly alley' and a maze of narrow streets inviting you to explore.

A trendy town

Despite the town’s name, Rock beach is a beautiful, fine, white sand beach that stretches for a mile from the edge of the River Camel around to Daymer Bay.

The town is home to some fantastic pubs and restaurants. Here you are able to experience some of the finest dining that the county has to offer, including Michelin-starred chef Nathan Outlaw’s contemporary pub The Mariners. There are plenty of shops in the town, too, including the popular Rock Bakery where you can buy freshly baked bread, cakes and Cornish pasties.

For a day trip, take the ferry across the river from Rock to Padstow where you can sample everything from traditional pasties to freshly caught seafood at Rick Stein’s The Seafood Restaurant. Other nearby attractions include the Eden Project, Prideaux Place and Polzeath Beach.
