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 magical coastline

A Tintagel holiday starts with a visit to the castle which, according to legend, once housed the mighty King Arthur. The jaw-dropping ruins have stunning views out to sea, and the often overlooked Tintagel Haven beach lies in its shadows at the bottom of the valley.

The coastline has an amazing network of coves and caves used in the past by smugglers and pirates. Clamber down the cliffs at low tide to visit Merlin’s Cave, said to once be the home of the wizard Merlin. The Tintagel coast is also connected to the South West Coast Path, with three circular walks suitable for all abilities.

From traditional pub grub to fine dining, there are a number of restaurants, pubs and cafés serving food in the village, while 14th century National Trust property The Old Post Office is well worth a visit.
