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.
