Wildlife Activities Cornwall

12th January 2016

Cornwall has a fascinating and diverse eco-system, from the tranquil seashore to the rugged moorland heaths. These wonderful habitats make Cornwall a fantastic wildlife haven.  If you love nature, then there is an array of wildlife activities in Cornwall:

Nature Trails

There are several nature trails, all based within a twenty minute drive of St Ives.

  • Baker’s Pit (old china clay works, heathland, wet willow woodland, scrub & grassland), near Nancledra.
  • Tehidy Woods (woodland & lakes), near Portreath.
  • Upton Towans (sand dune & grassland), Hayle.
Tehidy Woods in autumn, a walk through the woods is a great opportunity for wildlife activities in Cornwall. www.carbisbayholidays.co.uk

Tidal Pools

A great, safe alternative to swimming in the sea. Filled with fresh sea water at high tide and warmed by the sun during the day. The nearest tidal pools can be found at:

  • Cape Cornwall.
  • Chapel Rock, Perranporth.
  • Portreath.

Guided Nature Tours

Marine Discovery offer an exhilarating wildlife watching boat trip from Penzance Harbour, aboard an exciting sailing catamaran. Search for seals, seabirds, dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks and more along the stunning Cornish coastline.

Elemental Tours provide expertly guided, marine wildlife, ocean & coastal cruises on a 12 seater R.I.B. around the spectacular Land’s End and Lizard Peninsulas.

Also there are many small group, safari- style, tours and walks, with local guides where you can explore wildlife, flowers, ancient sites, folklore, mining history and geology, all set in and around the stunning granite cliffs and moorlands of West Penwith.
