Location and Surrounding Area
Falmouth has three beaches, Swanpool, Castle and the very popular, safe and sandy, (Blue flag) Gyllyngvase Beach (approx. 1.5 miles/2.3 km away). Falmouth has good shopping and leisure facilities as well as many waterside restaurants and bars. The Boathouse pub, just 500 metres away, serves excellent food and makes good use of its space to take in the incredible harbour views. Turn left out of Harbour View and in a few paces you are at The Greenbank Hotel and the Working Boat pub beneath. Cocktails and ales to be enjoyed at both.
Children and the young at heart, grab your swimmers at high tide and swim off the steps just below Harbour View. Parents can keep an eye from the Working Boat outside seating area!
Falmouth Town train station is three minutes by taxi or buses and coaches can be caught from The Moor, just five minutes on foot. Truro is a twenty-minute drive, The Eden Project thirty-five, St. Ives and the north coast forty.
