If you’re planning a getaway with your significant other, it pays to note those couples hotspots before you get there. But what are the most romantic places in Cornwall to visit?
Whether you’re looking for jaw-dropping beach scenes, castles in the sea or cliff-side theatres, discover something a little different on your next trip. In fact, we’re here to help! Check out some of our top romantic spots to visit in Cornwall, so you can plan those perfect moments together.
Enjoy pulling on your stompers and exploring the coast path together? Bedruthan Steps is one of the north coast’s most awe-inspiring spots to see… so, don’t miss it.
While here, marvel at panoramic views of the giant rock stacks that have made this stretch of coast so popular. While there is currently no access to the beach, the picture-postcard coves and seascapes are more than worth the trip.
Don’t forget to stop off at the Carnewas Tea Room for light lunches, cake, cream teas and ice cream.
Known for its soft white sand, turquoise waters and stunning rock stacks, Kynance Cove is one of Cornwall’s most beautiful coastal locations.
Located on the Lizard Peninsula and cared for by the National Trust, discover hidden caves and dramatic cliff faces as you walk, swim or snorkel your way around this beloved (and insta-famous) beach. You might even recognise scenes from Games of Thrones or Poldark at this popular filming location.
Head west and you’ll stumble across the Minack Theatre – perhaps one of the most unique theatres in the world.
Built into the cliffside above the equally-celebrated Porthcurno Beach, this theatre has rightfully earned its name as a must-visit attraction. The open-air venue offers dramatic views over the sea as you enjoy anything from comedy shows to orchestras and heart-wrenching drama – with tropical gardens to top it off.
Perfect for theatre lovers (but still an incredible experience for everyone else!).
St Michaels Mount
A castle in the sea may sound like the stuff of fairy tales, but, right here in Cornwall, you can find this very scene at St Michael’s Mount.
With stunning tropical gardens, an ancient chapel and views across Mount’s Bay, there’s no doubt this historic landmark will take your breath away. Even better, walk the iconic causeway at low-tide, the cool cobbles drying under your feet, as you pad barefoot to this world-famous attraction, steeped in mythical lore
If you’re a couple who love myth and folklore, Tintagel Castle could be the perfect date day out for you. The historic site is set into the clifftops of North Cornwall, a medieval fortification located on the peninsula of Tintagel Island.
Today, the site has many links to the tales of King Arthur, and, for centuries, this dramatic castle and coastline has fired the imaginations of writers, artists… and even the brother of a king.
While it now lays in ruins, be swept away in the ancient energy of this place – or simply enjoy the incredible views over the Atlantic as you stand on the edge.
St Nectan’s Glen
Reconnecting with each other through nature is one of the most romantic ways to spend time together – and you can do it all at St Nectan’s Glen.
Walk to this stunning waterfall through a temperate Atlantic rainforest with ivy clad trees and ferns along the banks of the River Trevillet. The ancient forest is a place where fauna take refuge amid tales of fairies, piskies and spirits – all serenaded by bird song. Find out more about the shrine to St Nectan and pay homage. The dream location for a truly spiritual experience!
