Penzance is the ideal place to center your holiday. The Penwith Peninsula is renowned for its tucked away coves, sandy beaches and ancient Celtic historical sites and they are all within easy reach of Penzance, either by car, train or on one of the many coach trips which start from the bus station in the town. More energetic types can sail or wind surf in the bay or take a walk over the coastal footpaths which are famous for their rugged beauty, wild flowers and the occasional school of dolphins cavorting out at sea.
The famous Minack open-air theatre is situated on the cliffs at Porthcurno where many a pleasant evening can be spent watching a variety of plays and musicals.
Take a day trip to the peaceful Isles of Scilly both the helicopter and the SS Scillonian leave from Penzance.
Last, but not least, there is St. Michaels Mount, rising out of Mounts Bay, owned by the National Trust and well worth a visit. Take a boat or, at low tide, it is possible to walk to the island across the causeway.
