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.
