Holidays in Falmouth

Holidays in Falmouth are made for lazy beach days, relaxed wanderings down cobbled streets, and easy access to some of Cornwall’s most fascinating historical buildings – not to mention a coastline that can easily be confused with the Med.

Situated on the coast, Falmouth benefits from four beautiful beaches, with many more nearby, including the much-loved Blue Flag beach, Gyllyngvase. The vibrant seaside town is also home to a selection of tropical gardens and a plethora of attractions to keep you entertained throughout your stay.

During your holiday in Falmouth, why not leave the car behind and experience some ‘car-free’ days out, enjoying transport links from the town by bus, rail, and even by boat! Visitors can take pleasure cruises around the Fal estuary or along the beautiful Helford River. Take the ferry to Flushing or St Mawes and experience the beautiful scenery along the way – it really is the only way to travel.

Home to the third deepest natural harbour in the world, it will be of little surprise that you can also enjoy many different water-based activities from Falmouth including sailing, sea safaris, and watersports – it really is a boater’s paradise!

Falmouth also benefits from a jam-packed events roster including music and food festivals as well as a week-long, town-wide celebration of all things Falmouth.

If you’re bringing the pooch with you, you’ll find lots of dog-friendly outings around Falmouth, as well as some fantastic eateries that welcome dogs and their well-behaved owners.

Did you know...

Pendennis Castle was built by Henry VIII to protect the Carrick Roads from invasion!

Beaches in Falmouth

If a Cornish stay isn’t complete without a beach day or two, Falmouth is a must-visit with its four beautiful beaches and stunning surrounding coastline.

Gyllyngvase beach – Perhaps Falmouth’s most popular beach, Gylly beach is home to everything you could want from a hazy day in the sand. Consistently flat waters provide the perfect conditions for SUPs while a café and restaurant on the beach offer beachgoers the chance to refresh and refuel without leaving the white gold sands behind.

Castle beach – Just down from Pendennis point you’ll find the aptly named Castle beach, which offers young and intrepid adventurers plenty of rockpools to explore, along with an underwater paradise for keen snorkelers. 

Swanpool beach – More a cove than a beach, Swanpool mixes an idyllic setting with action-packed watersports for a fun-filled beach day whatever your beachy interests. There’s also a great little beachside café for those all-important ice creams.

Maenporth beach – Just on the edge of Falmouth lies another of South Cornwall’s most serene beaches. Flat waters, golden sand, and an award-winning restaurant all add up to an unmissable day amidst sand, sun, and sea in Falmouth.

Things to do in Falmouth

Whether you’re a water baby at heart or a seeker of culture and cuisine, there are plenty of things to add to your holiday itinerary when visiting Falmouth.

Art Galleries

Falmouth is home to an eclectic mix of art galleries, all featuring a wide variety of local and national work. Home to one of the leading art collections in Cornwall, Falmouth Art Gallery is the place to go for a rolling look at Cornish art through the ages or you can head to Beside the Wave for more contemporary exhibitions.


After a shopping trip in Falmouth, you’ll want all highstreets to be lined with cobbles and decorated with colourful bunting – it really does set the scene for a vibrant day out! Falmouth’s shops themselves vary from big names like FatFace and Ann’s Cottage to more niche shops from intriguing antiques to everything Cornwall – perfect for your holiday memento. Oh, and if you have a sweet tooth, you’re going to want to check out Roly’s Fudge Pantry – it’s to die for!


A holiday in Falmouth wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Pendennis Castle and the National Maritime Museum – two of the town’s top cultural attractions. Both dive into the history of Falmouth and Cornwall with a definite nautical theme, with Pendennis Castle looking more at defence and the museum exploring the wider culture of life by the sea.

Boat Trips

When you get bored of hard ground beneath your feet, set sail up the Fal estuary or along to the Helford river on one of Falmouth’s many fantastic boat trips that vary from party boats to sea safaris to meals on keels (sorry, boat puns are a mandatory here).


With South Cornwall’s microclimate and plenty of sheltered bays, the waters around Falmouth are known for being consistently calm, which makes them perfect for mastering your favourite sea-based activity. Try your hand at everything from kayaking to SUPing, swimming to sailing as you swap dry land for the thrill of the Cornish waters.


River walks, coastal strolls and countryside ambles… there’s no limit to what your feet can discover with the many breath-taking walks in and around Falmouth. Take to the South West Coast Path for unbeatable coastal views (and plenty of opportunities for a cheeky dip in the sea) or take your walk riverside for an idyllic escape to nature. Falmouth’s also home to an impressive collection of gardens, each with their own intriguing collection of paths to explore.

Princess Pavilion

This fantastic theatre complex offers a year-round program of live music, entertainment and theatrical performances. Set in the stunning Gyllyngdune Gardens, you can pop along to take in the beautiful scenery and enjoy a drink and some food in the Garden Room Café. Find out more about the pavilion and what’s on here >

Dining Out

Falmouth is quickly becoming one of Cornwall’s ultimate foodie hotspots thanks to a veritable smorgasbord of top eateries and superb pubs and bars, many with incredible sea views and welcoming dogs. Mexican, Texan, African, Cornish, Caribbean, and vegan, it doesn’t matter what kind of cuisine you fancy, Falmouth’s got it all!

Dog-friendly Falmouth

While the four main beaches in Falmouth all operate under seasonal restrictions (dogs aren’t allowed on the beaches 1st May – 30th September, 10am – 6pm), there are plenty of pup-friendly places for you and the dog to get your beach fix near Falmouth.

Dog-friendly beaches

Polgwidden Cove – Accessed through the beautiful Trebah gardens, Polgwidden is a lovely shingle cove that’s dog-friendly throughout the year. If you don’t fancy walking, you can always rent a boat and sail there as many of the boat hires in Falmouth welcome salty sea dogs!

Sunny Cove – Perhaps the closest dog-friendly beach to Falmouth, Sunny Cove provides a perfectly sheltered place for a dog nap in the sand. It’s situated between Swanpool and Maenporth just off the coast path, making it a great destination for a dog walk. It is worth noting that the cove is popular with naturists so swimming costumes are optional!

Dog-friendly pubs and restaurants

Stable Pizza – Combining pizza, cider, and harbour views, Stable in Falmouth is a popular haunt for good reason. Dogs are welcome on the ground floor as well as outside so the whole family can enjoy a meal out together.

Five Degrees West – A pub that specialises in pizza and pints, Five Degrees is always a firm favourite with those who want to dine with their pup in tow. Pop in for a quiet drink or a slap-up meal, the choice is yours!

The Boathouse – Claiming the title of ‘pub with the best sea view in Falmouth’, The Boathouse has been welcoming guests for over 300 years, which is perhaps how they’ve perfected their easy-going offering. The menu might change with the season (and the chef’s fancy), but the friendly, dog-welcoming vibes remain the same.

What's on in Falmouth

The town has a rich tradition of hosting a year-round programme of events, from sailing regattas to live music and an abundance of food and drink festivals. You don’t have to wait for specific seasons either, as Falmouth enjoys plenty of markets and live music throughout the year.

Falmouth Week

Falmouth Week isn’t just a sailing regatta, it’s a ten-day-long, town-wide celebration that features every entertainment imaginable including unmissable live music, maritime marvels, and aerial displays.

Getting around

There is possibly no better place for a car-free holiday in Cornwall than Falmouth thanks to the town’s numerous public transport options. Catch the bus or train for connections with the rest of Cornwall or leave dry land behind as you hop aboard a ferry to St Mawes or Truro. Of course, if you fancy visiting via car, you’ll find plenty of parking at one of the town’s many car parks or you can use the park and ride service.

Lovely apartment with lots of space and everything you need for a relaxing break. We would book again.

Lovely apartment, spacious and comfy. Great location, nice and quiet with a lovely beach just a walk away. Lovely view, Would definitely stay again.

This is a gem of an apartment that is stunning and absolutely huge! The pictures really do not do Fantasea justice.

The living area is gorgeous, with two large comfy sofas, lovely to sprawl out on after a day in the sun. The washer room was a nice surprise and the perfect place to pop your luggage out of sight. The two bedrooms were clean and bright, with ample bedding and lots of hanging space/hangers in the wardrobes. The bathrooms are clean and modern with fresh towels galore.

The kitchen is really well equipped and everything appears to have been thought about. Just lovely.

The beach is a mere three minute walk from the apartment with the beach cafe being the perfect place for a breakfast or lunch.

The road up to the apartment can be tricky as this is really narrow, and only suitable for one car, though plenty of little layby's to nip into. Just go really slow!

The welcome gift was a treat! Thank you.

Hoping to come back next year. Just fabulous!

Thank you for the welcome gift pack. Fantasea is a spacious comfortable flat for a party of four. There is a sea view at distance. The lift was very useful as one of our party has mobility problems. Good to have a balcony although it needed a clean up as quite cobwebby. The car parking space for the flat is in a corner and we found it was quite tight for our car particularly when the user of the adjoining space parked on the dividing line. Nice to be able to walk down to the beach but only £3 all day parking if you want to take the car.

Superb, spacious, clean and comfortable apartment. Welcome pack was a lovely touch, with tasty locally sourced treats. Comfortable beds and furnishings. All possible equipment and appliances on hand. Nice location with parking spot very handy, but certainly leans towards people that don't mind a hike up and down the steep hill to the beach and around the costal paths! Would certainly recommend and found the whole process of booking, accessing and departing very easy. Aspects team were also great!

Lovely apartment. Very spacious and clean. Excellent location. Would highly recommend.

Lovely apartment bigger than it looks in the photos, next to excellent beach ideal for swimming and SUP. Coastal path on the door step for walking into Falmouth, finding other beaches and the hotel Meudon for food and drinks. NETFLIX and other streaming services available on the TV with your login.

This was our 3rd visit to Fantasea and we love it there. It's a modern, spacious apartment with enough space to actually live in and the interior is comfortable and smart. Unlike many holiday lets, the dedicated parking space outside is a big bonus, as is the proper utility room for sorting out beach stuff after a day out. As always with Aspects, everything is clean and well presented. Recent improvements at the property include comfier beds and blazing fast internet.

Maenporth beach is a five minute walk over the field, it's great for families as its clean, sheltered and has plenty of shallow water for kids to play. It seems really popular with the locals too, there is a good beach cafe, and parking is only £2 for the day if you don't fancy the walk.

If you like to head out of the door and have instant access to a wide choice of pubs, shops and restaurants then this place is probably not for you. If, however, you like to be able to go out walking or heading down to the beach in wetsuits the moment you spot the sun coming out then its ideal and highly recommended.

Large spacious apartment within easy driving / walking distance of Falmouth. Great balcony which does have some coastal views. The location is uphill from Maenporth beach (worth noting for walking purposes). Handy location for driving the other way down the coast towards Lizard to visit the many beautiful bays & beaches.

A really lovely apartment a scenic short walk away from Maenporth (uphill on the way back!) and short drive to Swanpool, Gylly Beaches and Falmouth. A perfect retreat, great location and loved our stay,

Fantastic location, lovely clean apartment with plenty of room for 4. Short walk to a stunning beach. Cannot wait to come back.

We absolutely loved Fantasea as an apartment to stay at. Had everything we needed, and more. Stunning views, perfect location with a short walk to the beach. Everything was well organised by Aspect Holidays. Couldn't fault a thing.

A beautifully furnished and comfortable apartment. From the small balcony there were lovely views of the sea and across the cove. Maanporth Beach is about ten minutes walk and has a lovely little cafe. Apart from The Cove Restaurant which was closed due to Covid, there are no other restaurants within easy walking distance but this didn’t bother us. We ate in several times after pre dinner drinks on the balcony. Perfect !

Lovely apartment close to Maenporth beach. Well equipped and very roomy. Would definitely recommend and hope to return

Nice spacious apartment with sea glimpses and surrounded by trees, so lots of birds including owls. Every convenience and good access and easy parking.

Lovely apartment. Great location near beautiful cove.

Beautiful accommodation in fabulous location. Everything we needed was there and lots to do nearby. We had terrible weather but it didn’t spoil it and we would definitely stay again.

Fantastic location, almost with it's own beach. We loved the apartments tastefully done coastal theme and the balcony provided some welcome outdoor space. Uncluttered and well equipped, we would definitely return.

Fantasea is a great place to stay. It's very spacious, quiet, very clean, and a great location. We loved our holiday to Cornwall and would highly recommend Fantasea as a place to stay.

We really enjoyed our week at Fantasea, this was our second visit in less than a year. It's a modern, comfortable apartment in a quiet spot with plenty of space for a family of four. The parking space is also a welcome bonus.

The location is great if you like beaches - just a five minute walk down the hill to Maenporth or 15 minutes the other way along the coast path to Bream Cove. Swan Pool and Gyllyngvase are only a short drive away.

Overall we'd recommend Fantasea to those seeking a relaxing beach holiday in a quiet location.
