If your kids are past the sand castle stage, here are a few ideas to fill their Cornish holiday with memorable fun and adventuring Surfing
It is hard to come to Cornwall with it’s stunning coastline, great waves and surfing heritage, and not want to try out surfing. With a range of options from sheltered areas for beginners and big waves for the more advanced, you’ve got no excuses. Most beaches have a local surf school with lessons available, along with wet suit and board hire. If you’ve not surfed before a lesson is the ideal introduction, because as well as the technical aspects, all the important beach safety elements are covered. Surfing is a sport, a hobby, a passion, an addiction, a way of life.

Here are a few ideas of how to have fun in a heat wave. We hope these are useful suggestions and that you enjoy them!
Get in the Pool
When the temperature hits 30C the best place to be is the swimming pool. It’s easy to spend a whole day relaxing on the loungers on the sundeck under a parasol, then having a dip in the pool to cool off, and repeat! The only problem with this is as the pool temperature averages 30 degree Celsius, it’s pretty warm also!

The views during the whole walk to the beach were just breath taking. We had to stop and take more photos, as it was just so beautiful, a very memorable walk indeed. We all just loved the beach and had the best day. We paddled, swam, found jellyfish, played rounders, ate pasties, sunbathed and kept and eye on the tide.
We decided it was time to try out Europe’s longest & fastest zipwire, which takes you on a flight over the iconic Eden Project. For a long time I have totally not wanted to do this at all, as it looks very high up and scary. We are regular visitors to the Eden Project and the SkyWire is very popular, people are always whizzing across bravely overhead.
