Bodmin is well placed in central Cornwall being virtually equidistant for both the north and south Cornish coastlines, both of which offer quite differing environments. The more rugged north Cornish coastline has the Atlantic swells meeting its golden sandy beaches providing excellent bathing and surfing conditions together with scenic cliff top walks that can be enjoyed from the South West Coastal Footpath. The softer south Cornish coast is a short drive away with picturesque fishing villages such as Looe and Mevagissey and the deep natural harbour at Fowey with its sailing clubs and wide range of leisure craft facilities making it a yachting haven and a popular port with its picturesque ancient streets of varied shops.
