Swan Pool

Take a stunning walk from Swanpool Beach to Maenporth along Cornwall’s South West Coast Path.

Walk along bright yellow gorse bushes, that smell of coconut, and watch for seal pups and dolphin pods in the crystal waters below.

The Wheelhouse

Falmouth’s exclusive seafood only restaurant, the Wheelhouse, is tough to get into, but well worth a month in advance reservation. For a very reasonable price you can feast on the freshest crab, lobster, prawns, mussels, scallops, and more. 

It’s set in an easy to miss alley way, but once you spot the natorious mermaid sculpture, you’ll know you’ve arrived.
