Hobbies to try in Cornwall
May 2019
 

Whether you’re looking for a sport to keep you fit, a way to meet new friends, or a hobby that could turn into a potential career, Cornwall has something to suit everyone. Here are some of the county’s most popular activities.

                                                    

Paddleboarding

Less tricky to master than surfing and great for your core, paddleboarding is one of the fastest growing watersports in Cornwall. Glide across the ocean as you enjoy the view – you may even spot the occasional pod of dolphins. WeSUP in Falmouth offers membership rates, lessons, fitness classes and group outings with plenty of opportunities to make new acquaintances as you increase your fitness levels.

Sailing

Cornwall truly is a sailor’s paradise. Whether you’re a boat owner looking to join one of the county’s prestigious yacht clubs or a novice sailor hoping to learn some new skills, living near the Cornish coast offers opportunities for every budget and skill level.

Foraging

Make the most of what nature has to offer by picking your own wild ingredients. To avoid any culinary disasters, beginner foragers can take one of the many classes on offer around the county, including an entry-level course led by Cornish Wild Food.

Beach yoga

There’s nothing more relaxing than listening to the sound of waves crashing against the shore while you breathe the ocean air and practice your vinyasa flow. Best enjoyed during the summer months, you can find classes offered by private instructors as well as local gyms.

Conservation

Caring for the environment is a high priority in Cornwall, so if you want to get involved there’s no shortage of opportunities. From participating in regular beach cleans to carrying out diving surveys to becoming a guide at a National Trust property, volunteering is a great way to learn new skills and make new friends.

Beachcombing

If you enjoy being outdoors but prefer a more relaxing hobby, there’s something very calming about beachcombing. Many Cornish beaches offer excellent scavenging opportunities for sea glass, shells, driftwood, and unusual pebbles that are perfect for displaying in a coastal style home or using in arts and crafts projects.

Jewellery making

Wondering what to do with all the sea glass you’ve collected? Why not try your hand at jewellery making? Cornwall Council runs a number of adult education classes throughout the county to suit all ages and experience levels.

Photography

With its rugged coastline, sandy beaches, and dramatic sunrises and sunsets, Cornwall is one of the most photogenic counties in the country. Take a photography class to learn some new skills or simply pick up a camera and practice snapping away on a weekend outing or morning dog walk.

Hiking

With 296 miles of coast path to explore, there’s no shortage of beautiful walks in Cornwall. From thick woodland to wild moors, open fields to breathtaking coastal scenery, the Cornish landscape has something to offer every nature lover. Most walks are dog-friendly (as are most pubs) so grab your canine companion and choose a trail.
