Cornwall is the the south western point of England, and one of the most well known beach destination in the UK. With good surf, and an amazing coastline.
Where to Stay in Cornwall
Newquay has the most bustling night life and is close to the airport, with great surf beaches and a good range of cheap hostels, up to 4 star hotels.
The prices are noticeably cheaper than London, with fresh caught half lobster with a glass of wine for £15, or a common 2 sirloin steak and bottle of wine for £30.
Getting to Cornwall:
There is an airport just outside Newquay that is serviced a few times daily from London Gatwick, as well as rail (6 hours) or a 4.5 hour drive from London. With hire cars available in London fairly cheaply, and the inaccessibility of some of the more remote and spectacular beaches a hire car is a good idea the below destinations of Port Quinn and Port Isaac, are accessible by car but lack any form of public transport.
St Ives is also a large and well developed tourist destination with brilliant beaches and a bustling number of tourist facilities including boat hire, swimming beaches, surfing and kayak trips.
