SEASIDE PORTH OF CALL: PORTHLEVEN
The most southerly port in Great Britain has a charm all of its own. Porthleven, just down the road from the town of Helston, is picture-perfect, especially when viewed from its iconic granite harbour or fine beach. The town has enjoyed its fair share of shipwreck stories over the years due to its location on the coast but these days it’s a great holiday destination that keeps its old-world fishing port charm while also offering some ace arty shops and hearty eateries. Walkers flock to the town due to the sheer amount of coastal hikes on offer around its edges and experienced surfers flock to the town for the decent waves out there when there isn’t a vicious storm on the horizon. You should flock there too and eat, shop, hike, sunbathe and wander like you’ve never done before.
