A holiday cottage in Whitsand Bay is hard to beat if you want to make the most of the spectacular south Cornwall coast. This dramatic sweep of golden sand and towering cliffs stretches for three uninterrupted miles, from Portwrinkle to Rame Head. Whether you want to walk the Southwest Coast Path, surf or sunbathe, self-catering holidays in Whitsand Bay have plenty to offer. Known locally as ‘The Forgotten Corner of Cornwall’, Whitsand Bay is a rugged stretch of coast located in southeast Cornwall, near the Devon border. The surrounding Cornish countryside is a walkers’ paradise, with wooded valleys, meadows and historical gardens to explore. The Southwest Coast Path runs the entire length of the bay, offering breathtaking views across the sea, towards France, and the chance to spot dolphins and basking sharks. The bay’s pristine beaches are wonderfully undeveloped and solitude is easy to find, despite the close proximity of the city of Plymouth. Follow steep steps down the cliffs to the sand, search for starfish and crabs in the rockpools at low tide and watch the sunset on the horizon at the award-winning View Café or Eddystone Café. Divers won’t want to miss HMS Scylla, a naval frigate which sunk and formed an artificial reef.
