St Anthony is one of the most picturesque headlands in the county with stunning views in all directions.

There is also a regular service from Place and St Anthony Headland to St Mawes. The ferry is a great way to see the river and the surrounding countryside, and offers stunning views of ...

the coastline and the sea.

St Mawes enjoys one of the most picturesque locations in the world, the beautiful south-facing village has been developed, over the centuries, into the exquisite tourist destination we find today. The pretty little harbour is flanked by several family-friendly beaches, and there are boutique hotels, thriving art galleries, fine restaurants and traditional pubs, in the summer St Mawes is a wonderful, thriving, energetic, village, and in the winter one of the most tranquil destinations you can imagine. In the 16th century, Henry VIII built a pair of Castles to protect Falmouth Harbour from the perils of Catholic Europe, but particularly the threat from Spain, the clover leaf design of St Mawes Castle is one of its most interesting features however the most noteworthy is the view which is just stunning. Meander through the historic buildings with interesting displays and the perfect grounds, spattered with cannons ready to fend off seaborne invaders. There is always action afloat, the iconic little blue ferries regularly heading over the Carrick Roads to Falmouth and back, viewing dolphins from here is a surprisingly regular occurrence, particularly out of season.

2 miles inland is St Just in Roseland which is most famous for the stunning Church. Nestled on the edge of the tidal pool, surrounded by sub-tropical gardens, it was described by Sir John Betjeman as being “to many people the most beautiful churchyard on earth.” Legend says the church stands at the spot where a young Jesus Christ stepped ashore with his Uncle, Joseph of Arimathea, while sheltering from a storm. Whether you are religious or not the church and its tranquil setting are a must-see. Portscatho lies in the South-westerly corner of Gerrans Bay on the Roseland peninsula. The East-facing cove affords shelter from the prevailing sou-westerly winds and this meant it was ideal as a base for the pilchard fleets of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and is still, although on a much smaller scale, an active fishing port today. The same shelter makes for safe swimming and its proximity to many fine sandy beaches means it’s a family favorite the village centre you’ll find several shops including a decent grocery/off licence as well as the now standard galleries and gift shops. The Plume of Feathers pub serves up St Austell Ales and good pub grub. Above Portscatho lies the village of Gerrans - only a five minute walk up the hill. Another decent pub, the Royal Standard can be found here. The mediaeval church that stands opposite has served as an invaluable landmark to generations of local fishermen. As in many coastal communties a red-painted world war two mine stands above the harbour as a collection box for mariners charities. However adjacent to the one in Portscatho stands a unique memorial plinth dedicated to the 26,380 servicemen who lost their lives in the Burma war but who have no known resting place.
