All of Cornwall is beautiful, North or South. You could try Marazion, Porthleven, Looe or Polperro. Give them a Google and see which places you like the look of most. There is plenty to see and do in all areas. Just some suggestions really. I always say to people, whilst Cornwall is not a vast county and things are generally easily accessible, keep the travelling down to a minimum so you aren't up and down all over the place. Relax and enjoy the pace of the place. I appreciate you are coming a long way though and will want to see as much as possible. Despite this, my advice still stands, it is such a difference pace of life in Cornwall, it is wonderful, nice to get chance to sit back, relax, look at the sea and the waves and just not do too much. Enjoy yourself ;-)
North and south Cornwall are quite different I find. North has some Caribbean like beaches and clear blue seas whilst the south is more rocky and wilder. If you are looking for somewhere on the south coast, I'd look at Mevagissey, Fowey or Looe. Lovely little fishing villages with plenty to do in the area.
I bow to our Cornish experts but I always think the north coast is wilder and more rugged than the south.
Yes, I agree with you. The south coast is much 'softer' than the north and so it would be well worth spending a couple of days there as a contrast to the north.
I agree with Walt, the North coast always seems wilder to me, the op wanted a contrast to the north coast he was visiting, hence my suggestions
Thank you for all the great suggestions. We are definitely going to go for the south coast and looks like we are spoilt for choice.
