On the water this Easter
Explore the stunning South West coast this Easter holiday on a relaxed sailing trip in the clear, turquoise waters. There’s an abundance of sea life at this time of the year as the temperatures rise, providing opportunities for feeding and breeding. Plankton is rife in spring, attracting basking sharks to the area. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch a view of their gaping mouths as they glide past you just beneath the surface. Bluefin tuna, which had almost disappeared 40 years ago, have been seen in Cornwall the last few years due to the warmer climate. You’ll also find it easier to spot dolphins this season, with recent sightings of large pods of common dolphins leaping through the waves.
Discover Cornwall in spring
Pack some delicious snacks and enjoy a picnic on the golden sand. Find secret coves and take a gentle stroll along the beach, or through Cornish woodland blanketed with vibrant wildflowers. With the arrival of spring comes stunning displays of bluebells, so keep your eyes peeled for the unique blue hue of these delicate flowers.
