Turquoise blue water is not normally associated with the British coastline but then, most people haven’t been to Cornwall! Lucky for me, being a trad climber and a Falmouth university graduate, I have spent a lot of time on some of the most picturesque and untouched stretches of coastline in the south west of England. And basically, I fancied sharing some pictures of this amazing area with you. Even though most of you wont be climbers! However maybe this will tempt you to visit Cornwall. Maybe even give climbing a go or take a walk along the beautiful Bosigran coastline. Disclaimer: both activities are a lot more enjoyable in the sun!
Bosigran is a large, granite sea cliff located in West Penwith. It is understandably one of my favourite places to climb in Cornwall… look at these views! The mixture of grades here keep all types of trad climber happy. Meanwhile the coastal path makes for an impressive walk. You’re likely to spot seals, dolphins and if you’re lucky, basking sharks in the waters around Bosigran. The abandoned mines dotted along the paths add a suitably Cornish feel!
