Hi Folks!

I am off to Tintagel for a week at the beginning of September. I was hoping that you guys could give some ideas on the best photographic locations around this area (as well as directions on how to find them!). I am preferably looking for landscapes and some nice rocky coves for sunrise/sunset shots!

All help gratefully received!!


P.S. All locations have to doggy friendly - I wouldn't want to leave Charlie in the car!!

Loads of places round there, but my fave and personal recommendation is Boscastle: fabulous situation, beautiful little harbour, blowhole in the cliffs which can be spectacular if the conditions are right, interesting medieval (I think!) field system up on the cliffs and interesting river valley (the Valency) inland... Have to admit that I don't know whether it's dog-friendly, but as it's not beach, I would imagine Charlie will be OK to accompany you! Wink

The Clifs east of Tintagel have potential.

On a high tide, Trebarwith Strand can be good for sunset, as the sea surges up a rocky channel

Can recommend Rocky Valley a wonderful walk down to the sea. Head for Trevillett Mill on the B3263 between Tintagel and Boscastle

Just come back from a couple of days in that part of the world and, in addition to the other great suggestions, I would add The Strangles beach near Crackington Haven (a fair hike from the road and a b*****d of a climb back up, but worth it) and Sandy Mouth Bay. Hopefully, you'll have better luck with the tides than I did. High tides at both dawn and sunset spoilt things somewhat.

Went to Boscastle and Tintagel 2 years ago, for about 4 days. Parked my camper at Trewethit Farm Caravan Club site. Fantastic area for landscapes.

I need to find my slides to see if any are worth uploading to my portfolio!
