Hayle is not to be missed when visiting Cornwall, with an abundance of activities and places to explore on its doorstep. Spot wild seals in the secret coves and out to sea, take to the waves and windsurf up the turquoise estuary and walk the coast path, pack up a picnic and watch the sun go down behind Godrevy Lighthouse.
The three miles of golden sands is backed with giant dunes and the South West Coast Path wraps around it leaving you plenty of nooks and crannies to explore. The white powder beaches of St Ives and Carbis Bay are just a stone’s throw away with a fantastic collection of eateries, bars, shops and galleries.
