Falmouth Seaside

Falmouth seaside town, Cornwall

Falmouth is a town and port on the River Fal on the south coast of Cornwall. Falmouth is famous for its harbour and along with Carrick Roads (the estuary of the River Fal), it forms the third deepest natural harbour in the world, and the deepest in Western Europe.

Pendennis castle is a major landmark and was built in 1540 by Henry VIII to protect Carrick Roads and then in the late 16th century was strengthened to protect from the threat of the Spanish Armada.

The town has two beach options, the large sandy beach of Gyllyngvase and the rockier Castle Beach. Falmouth has easy access to both sheltered and unsheltered waters making it popular location for boating and water sports.

Carrick Roads and the Fal Estuary are favoured by ornithologists for birdwatching, especially the waders and waterbirds that visit in autumn and winter.
