A local’s guide to holidays in Swanpool…



Things to do in Swanpool

Swanpool holidays are special indeed, with calm waters at both the lagoon and beach seeing visitors enjoying kayaking, paddle-boarding, sailing and swimming. Just over the sandbar that separates the beach from the lagoon, is the sheltered family-friendly crescent of sand and shingle with a great beach café selling nibbles and ice-creams. The kayak and board hire shop along with the beach’s safe swimming conditions offer plenty to do on those bucket and spade days where relaxing in the sunshine is a must, and just a short 10 minute stroll away along the South West Coast path is the small yet popular Gyllyngvase Beach.

Swanpool is also home to a nature reserve at Swanvale where many smaller bird varieties take shelter, and ducks and swans roam freely. A walk around the reserve offers visitors a peaceful respite amongst the mosses and ferns that thrive in the humid atmosphere of this wet woodland.

Nearby, the town of Falmouth offers a great variety of shops and restaurants, and includes many historical sites as well as the Falmouth Golf Club.
