Why not leave your car for the day and make the most of the Cawsand Ferry service. During April - October, the Cawsand ferry operates a regular pedestrian service from Cawsand beach to Plymouth's famous Barbican. The half hour journey makes a great way to explore the many sites in Plymouth such as National Marine Aquarium, Plymouth Hoe, Royal William Yard and Crownhill Fort, as well as taking in the breath-taking views along the way.
Remember to pack your walking boots
Kingsand and Cawsand sit on the SW coastal path, making it an excellent way to see more of this beautiful part of Cornwall. From Cawsand, there is an easy - moderate walk to Rame Head. From the square head towards the woodland and pick up the path from here to Rame Head, passing Penlee Point on your way. The rugged coastline provides many areas to sit and enjoy the views back to the villages and down to Plymouth - be sure to take a camera.
The Eden Project
Open since 2000, the two huge biomes that make up the Eden Project are full of thousands of different species of plants that have been collected from diverse regions and climates all over the world. The larger of the two biomes recreates a rainforest environment to suit the plants suited to a more tropical climate, which makes for a fascinating day of exploration, discovering exotic and unusual plants and trees, which would otherwise be inaccessible unless you travelled across the globe! There is also an outdoor area of the Project which holds plants and trees native to the UK and to the Cornwall area. The Eden project is open every day of the year except Christmas day, so there’s always an opportunity to visit this unique, ever changing and ever evolving green museum.
