With its traditional whitewashed, thatched fisherman’s cottages and fleet of working fishing boats, Cadgwith really is a true Cornish village.
Two shingle beaches, separated by a promontory called ‘The Todden’, form the heart of the cove, with glorious cliff top walks to either side.
The cove has a cosy pub, which hosts traditional Cornish singing and regular folk music nights, and is the perfect place for a pint.
The old lifeboat house, used until 1963 is a reminder of the past and why not take a moment to sit on ‘the stick’ and watch the boats land their catch on the beach?
No trip to the Lizard Peninsula should be without a visit to this delightful cove.
