A thriving food scene and seaside setting makes this Cornish town the perfect coastal escape
Porthleven harbour; Amelie’s seafood plank

Why go

Criss-crossed by coastal walks and dominated by an historic walled harbour, Porthleven is every inch the Cornish idyll. There are stone cottages, winding little streets and ishermen landing daily catches of mackerel and pilchards at the harbour. It’s this seafood bounty — along with delicious gelato at Nauti but Ice — that’s helped put the seaside town on the foodie map, with a rat of excellent restaurants and a food and music festival every spring. Plus, there are plenty of places to walk it all of, too: from scenic hikes along the coast to major local landmarks — St Michael’s Mount, the Flambards Experience amusement park, the Minack Theatre and Land’s End are all just a short hop away.

About National Geographic Traveller (UK)

We reveal the destinations that made our Cool List 2019 — from booming gastronomic hotspots to up-and-coming cities, this is the last word in where you should visit in the year to come. Elsewhere, we explore the wild side of Quebec’s national parks; leave our shoes behind on Colombia’s barefoot Pacific coast; and spend a long weekend in Bornholm. Other highlights this issue include Kuala Lumpur, Richmond, Prague, Marrakech and Taipei while our photo story joins the wild horse herders in Iceland’s rural east.
