The water down in the bay is clear and calm, so much so that it has rightly earned itself the UK’s prestigious Blue Flag status.

If you like a spot of fine dining you’ll love The Ugly Butterfly Restaurant and Bar.

For something a little more continental there’s LaCasita on Trencrom Lane. Bringing an authentic taste of Spain to the Cornish coastline there are tapas dishes, paellas and pizzas to sample including Mixed Cured Spanish Meat Croqueta, Monkfish, prawns, mussels & squid paella, and Diavolo pizza.
