There are plenty of things to do in Cornwall and you're bound to be inspired to explore in all directions by the incredible views from the campsite. There's a National Trust viewpoint at the back of the site, offering great views in all directions, with the Isles of Scilly visible on a clear day.
A 20 minute walk from the park takes you to Carn Euny, an ancient Iron Age settlement that is popular with history loving tourists. The central location of the park on the Land’s End peninsula means all of the nearby beaches are within easy reach. There are some great villages to discover by the coast, too, and you must visit Sennen, Mousehole, and St Levan, all of which offer you access to exceptional beaches as well as offering a range of excellent amenities.
These villages are all found on the South West Coastal Path, which itself offers miles of great walking and cycling trails, with views across the Atlantic, English Channel, and the Cornwall countryside.

If you're there at the end of May, look out for Pirates on the Prom and other enjoyable family events.
If you enjoy playing golf on holiday in Cornwall, try the excellent Cape Cornwall Golf Course near St Just, where you can play a round while enjoying spectacular sea views.
