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 Polruan

An ancient fishing village with a long history of boat building, Polruan is situated on the Polperro Heritage Coast. This village in South Cornwall has a distinct charm about it with many old buildings along the quay.

A perfect position

Visitors flock to Saltash because of its perfect position on the border of Devon and Cornwall. The town makes a great base for an all-round holiday experience. Pack buckets and spades for a trip to the sandy beaches of Whitsand Bay or enjoy a ramble across Bodmin Moor.

Fancy taking to the water? There’s a small pier where you can enjoy a leisurely cruise or catch the ferry for a fun day out in Plymouth. Saltash’s centre is a thriving hub for shopping and eating with many pubs and restaurants. The Cardinals Hat, The Ploughboy Inn and The Brunel Inn are particularly worthy of note.

The historic houses of Buckland Abbey, once the home of Sir Francis Drake, Cotehele, a fabulous Tudor house and the remains of the miniature Norman keep of Trematon Castle are all within easy reach.
