St Agnes has two excellent sandy beaches, Trevaunance Cove (10 minute walk) and Chapel Porth which is owned by the National Trust. Both are popular and suit all ages, try your hand at rock pooling or give surfing a shot.
Surf lessons and equipment hire are available at Trevaunance Cove and coasteering and guided kayaking are further options. Otherwise, play a game of tennis at St Agnes Tennis Club where you can “pay to play.”
For the less adventurous, St Agnes is well known as a centre for arts and crafts and there are a wealth of workshops and galleries to explore. To take in the refreshing sea air, enjoy one of the many superb walks, a recommended one is around St Agnes Beacon which is owned by the National Trust and offers some stunning views.
The village is an ideal location for exploring this beautiful part of Cornwall with a huge range of things to keep you busy. If you have a passion for food why not try the mouth-watering Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall restaurant (Watergate Bay) or enjoy a delicious meal at Rick Stein's seafood restaurant (book well ahead to secure a table).
The Eden Project, The Tate at St Ives, The Lost Gardens of Heligan or Falmouth with its superb castle and Maritime Museum provide you with a diverse and interesting variety of activities.
The National Trust House and Gardens of Trellisick and Trerice are both beautiful places to take a wander. Otherwise, simply take a stroll around the pretty town of Padstow with its abundance of shops or the cathedral city of Truro.
