A recent BBC news story reported that this summer, Cornwall has been “struggling to cope” with “unprecedented mass tourism”. A long stretch of warm, sunny weather, combined with increased social media coverage, has resulted in many beaches being incredibly crowded this year.
However, with such an extensive coastline, and over 400 beaches to choose from, you don’t need to let congested country lanes, full car parks and fields of windbreaks ruin your holiday.
One of the best ways to find your own secluded slice of Cornish paradise is to book a charter trip on one of our beautiful yachts, and discover hidden gems off the beaten track.
In addition to securing a spot in a beautiful, quiet cove, arriving at the beach by boat adds a certain magic and sense of adventure that the whole family can enjoy. The team at Bowman Yacht Charters will help you to build exactly the right package to suit you.
We can offer full day trips to some of the best secret beaches, or longer stays exploring the Cornish coast, where you can enjoy a restful sleep aboard one of our three comfortable yachts after long days spent swimming in turquoise seas or lying on golden sands.
To give you a taste of what your charter yacht experience could involve, some popular beach choices when you’re not tied to easy access by car include Lantic Bay, just round the corner from the bustling town of Fowey, Vault Beach near Gorran Havan, or Bosahan Cove on the Helford.
Discover instagram-worthy soft sand beaches and crystal clear water gently lapping on the shore. We can guide you to beaches that are more difficult to access on foot (these examples have at least a 20 minute walk, plus a cliff path journey down at Lantic Bay) so they are often much quieter than other well-known locations, while still being incredibly beautiful.
Visiting by boat means you can enjoy easy access, plus on board facilities such as a bathroom and fridge for keeping your picnic fresh. Let Bowman Yacht Charters help you enjoy the very best secluded beaches in Cornwall, comfortably and conveniently, and create holiday memories to last a lifetime.
