Hayle Area

Located on the north coast in the far west of Cornwall, Hayle is nestled in St Ives Bay only 5 miles from the town itself.  The ideal destination for an outdoor holiday - positioned at the mouth of an estuary famed for quality bird-watching and served by 3 miles of golden sandy beaches perfect for a variety of watersports.  There are fantastic countryside walks to be enjoyed, unsurprising as Hayle was the first town in Cornwall to be given the "Walkers Are Welcome" award.

Steeped in history, much of the town including the historic harbour is part of a designated World Heritage site.  If history is your bag why not visit the Oral History Centre where stories about Hayle’s past are recounted by residents and information and historic photos are displayed.  Or perhaps Godrevy Point to take in the view of the famous island lighthouse which is said to have been the inspiration for Virginia Woolf's novel To the Lighthouse.

Paradise Park, an award winning wildlife park and indoor play centre, is situated in the town and there are many other attractions close by.  There’s plenty to do and see in the area with a host of villages and coves to explore and the town of Marazion, gateway to the world famous St Michael’s Mount, is only a 15 minute drive.  The amazing island, cut off by the tide twice a day is well worth a trip to see its gardens, castle and village.
