One of the main attractions of Cadgwith Cove is the small shingle beach that is still home to a number of working fishing boats. As you wander around the village, you will see fishermen hauling in their daily catch.

If you're feeling adventurous, taking a short walk along the South West Coast path towards The Lizard is well worth doing as you will come across the Devil's Frying Pan. This natural wonder is a 200 foot-deep hole in the cliffs that was formed after a cave collapsed many years ago. It's a truly breathtaking sight and one that shouldn't be missed.
