12 APR 2019: If turquoise seas just make you think of the Caribbean, it’s time for a visit to Cornwall. Located on England’s rugged southwestern tip, it forms a peninsula of wild moorland and hundreds of sandy beaches, ending at the rugged cliffs of Land’s End. The south coast, dubbed the Cornish Riviera, is home to picturesque harbour villages such as Fowey and Falmouth. The north coast is lined with towering cliffs and seaside resorts and is a popular spot for surfers.

Along with breathtaking scenery – the names alone - Penzance, St. Ives, St. Michael’s Mount, Tintagle, Bodmin Moor - invoke the art, literature, history and culture that abound in Cornwall. (There’s a branch of the Tate Gallery perched high up on a hill overlooking the water in St. Ives.)

And if you’re looking for cuisine, Cornwall has plenty to offer - from local pubs to the restaurants of celebrity chefs Rick Stein and Jamie Oliver.

If you’ve not visited Cornwall, you might want to rectify that. Go for a weekend, a week, a month, for as long as you can – but do go.
