Out & About
When you holiday at Carnevas Holiday Park on the North coast of Cornwall, you are in a good location to explore all the attractions, beaches and historic heritage that Cornwall has to offer.
There are many unspoilt beaches to be enjoyed both when the sun encourages beach activities, or early morning and late evening for those bracing walks. The North Coast of Cornwall has some of the best surf beaches in the country and is host to some of the major surf championships in the UK. Fistral Beach in Newquay is a hot spot for surfers with the international surf centre being based there and there is also the Extreme Academy at Watergate Bay from where you can try various water based activities, including Kite Surfing. For a shorter walk head to the very popular Trevose Head beaches which boast some excellent surf. Coastal footpaths can be explored all year round and special bike trails, such as the Camel Trail from Bodmin to Padstow is a very scenic and enjoyable cycle (or walking) route for the more energetic.
Quaint harbours, National Trust properties and the Great Gardens of Cornwall help give a wide choice of attractions to visit at any time of the year.
The remarkable Eden Project continues to develop as one of Cornwall's most popular visitor attractions and will fascinate all those who visit the site. The mediterranean and tropical biomes, award winning café and well stocked shop are well worth a visit during your holiday in Cornwall.
