Kayaking is hearty and wholesome recreational paddling along the Fowey estuary. It allows the paddler to stop for one or two pub lunches. Since Cornwall is all about moors, water, and wind-swept beaches, paddling the kayak is an experience you shouldn’t miss. Start the paddling and fill your body with fresh air, then stop for great pub food.

Carved into a massive heap of rock and ending at the sea – the Minack Theatre. It may be the most glamorous open-air theatre in the UK. The Minack Theatre is the result of Rowena Cade’s thought of making a good setting from a piece of a cliff where people can perform “The Tempest.”

The outcome is an astonishing drop to the sea with seats etched out of granite. Going down from its huge lump of rock reveals the location of Shakespeare’s play where most of his stage performances were carried out.

3. Lost Gardens of Heligan

It was once lost but now found! Everything in the magnificent botanic gardens of Heligan is worth admiring – the plants, the vision and certainly, the story.

Frances Hodgson Burnett wrote about ‘The Secret Garden’ without knowing that one day, Britain would be a dwelling place to a real secret garden salvaged from abandonment and restored to life. Visiting these lost gardens is one of the best things you can do in South Cornwall.
