We, like many couples live rather hectic lives with a whole host of activities that keep me and my fiance busy, renovating our house, planning a wedding, training for half marathons and both working full time. All this means we are very rarely able to spend time together, but sometimes you just have to take some time to be a couple and especially when living in Cornwall enjoy the county that we work so hard to live in.
With a few hours to spare we decided to explore some of the south coast of Cornwall and picked a place name that we had never heard of before and headed to Portholland.
What a beautiful place! Why had we never been here before??? It's so easy, when you don't get much time off to head straight to the classic tourist destinations when you get the opportunity to get out and enjoy the area. For us this usually means a trip to Falmouth, Padstow or St Ives.
But during the summer months most of these popular towns are swarming with people and they feel more like London's Piccadilly circus than quiet quaint Cornwall.

We took a walk across the beach and decided as it was such a lovely day that we would head on up to the coast path and walked to Caerhays Beach and back. There was a gorgeous little cafe here overlooking the beach and stopped for a bite of lunch before walking back along the coast path back to the car.
