The jewel in the crown that is St Austell Bay is the World Heritage harbour of Charlestown. Film crews aplenty have used the historic seaport and its tall ships for all sorts of films and television series’ – most recently, BBC's Poldark. Beyond the harbour there’s sheltered beaches made for rock–pooling, swimming, snorkelling, fishing and kayaking, lush countryside rolling to the edge of the sea, and the coast path winding from cliffs to coves. Rise at the crack of dawn to see the tiny fishing fleet landing the day’s catch, spot buzzards and basking sharks, then cycle into St Austell for a buzzing food, drink and shopping scene. The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are within easy reach and well worth visiting, as well as the Roseland Peninsula where St Mawes and Portscatho offer beautiful harbours to visit.
