The North Cornwall Coast

Fly from Exeter or Newquay, and you’ll take in the spectacular north coast: the long stretches of beaches, towering cliffs, and picture-perfect coastal towns.

Sennen Cove, West Cornwall

A long, famous expanse of beach on the Land’s End peninsula. In summer, the waters are a tropical blue; at other times, the waves can be spectacular.

The rugged cliffs of Land’s End

This is Cornwall’s furthest tip and is suitably dramatic. As you head out over the Atlantic, you’ll see the cliffs, rocks and waves in an entirely new way.

Iconic, Longships Lighthouse

There’s been a lighthouse protecting shipping from the treacherous Land’s End coast since 1795. Longships is almost 150 years old, and can be seen 11 miles away.

Spot the Scillonian III from Skybus

Look out through your Skybus window below for the iconic white passenger ferry, making her crossing to St. Mary's Harbour.

Your first glimpse of Scilly

Very quickly after take-off, the Isles of Scilly come into view. Before you know it, you’re looking down at sandy coves and turquoise seas.
