Romance is in the air! Here at Blue Monkey we’re looking forward to Valentines Day but this year we have to stay closed so to celebrate online, here are my suggestions for a romantic break at Blue Monkey Cornwall. This ancient clock tower was erected to commemorate the coronation of King George V and is a great place to gaze out to sea from. Kingsand and Cawsand are steeped in history – particularly of pirates and smuggling (so romantic!).
There is something so romantic about watching the Sunset. There are many beautiful walks along the coast and local countryside that afford you a fantastic view of the sunset. A couple of my favourites:
Gaze at the moon over the sea. There is nothing more romantic than a moonlit night. If you are a serious star gazer there are many recommended ‘dark sites’ near Blue Monkey. Try Kit Hill, near Callington, a recommended ‘dark site’ 45 minutes drive from Blue Monkey.
Paddle in the sea together at one of the local beaches. Stay until sunset and roast marshmallows around a fire.
Take the ferry across to Plymouth and spot the dolphins on the way. The local ferry runs from Easter to the end of October from Cawsand Beach to a landing stage at the Barbican.
Top Tip: £5 per adult and dogs, prams and bicycles are allowed on board.
Penlee Point is a wonderfully romantic walk with breath-taking views at the end of the Rame Peninsula.
And of course Cornwall is a wonderful place to get married so if your romantic break at Blue Monkey Cornwall inspires you, we have some wonderful wedding venues within 10 minutes drive and you can read more about them here.
