Cornish Riviera

The Cornish Riviera

For those of you who have ever wondered why on earth anyone would call St Austell Bay the Cornish Riviera, hopefully this photo will answer your question. It was taken just around the corner from the attractively named Black Head looking across St Austell Bay. Now, I expect the reason many of you are so cynical of the tag Cornish Riviera is because it doesn’t often look quite like this. The day I was out on the coast path had to be the best day of the summer and provided me with some great photos.

I’m not sure if this little cove has a name, or even if it can be reached without the aid of a mountain goat, but on this day it was like a little slice of the Adriatic in Cornwall.
