Whatever the season, Cornwall has plenty to see and do, especially for those who want to get active and enjoy the great outdoors.
Stand Up Paddleboarding
Marazion has an expansive sandy beach, ideal for swimming and rock pooling, with RNLI lifeguards overseeing the beach in the summer season. Nearby indoor leisure pools include Penzance Leisure Centre, and Wheal Rodney, Marazion. The Jubilee Pool, Penzance's 1920s saltwater lido, is also a great place for families to bathe.
The Godolphin Arms is perfectly situated to explore the South West Coast Path, with Penzance in one direction, and in the other, the Lizard. With the coast abundant with food to forage, join Wild Food Walks and see what nature has to offer.
A new cycle path has been completed linking Marazion with Penzance and creates a breathtaking cycle path around Mounts Bay. Hire a bike from Land's End Cycle Hire at Long Rock – a 10-minute walk from the Godolphin Arms.
Cornwall is well known for its surf culture and is a great place to learn the sport. Local surf schools and surf equipment hire can be found at both Sennen beach, Smart Surf School, and Gwithian beach, Gwithian Academy of Surfing.
