  With a surfing beach that stretches for three miles, this one-time tin mining village has a joyful character with surrounding scenery capable of stealing one’s breath.

Close by is the 6th century St. Piran’s Church but there is also a 130ft amphitheatre called St. Piran’s Round where ancient mystery plays are re-enacted.

The village inspired the novelist Winston Graham to pen his famous ‘Poldark’ series of novels after he moved here in the 1930's.
