The almost island is circled on three sides by the sea and the River Helford on the fourth and continues to be a major tourist attraction. The most likely to be seen species are the Bottlenose and Common Dolphin, if you’re lucky you might see the Risso’s Dolphin and Harbour Porpoise which have been recorded in smaller numbers.

The warm climate on the Lizard Peninsula makes it a hot spot for locals and tourists on holiday alike. Visitors can enjoy the natural beauty and wildlife, full of colour and superb vegetation and crops, which are used in the local restaurants alongside other delicious local produced foods.

Boasting a superb collection of beaches, visitors will be simply spoilt for choice on where to spend their days soaking up the sun, taking to the water with a surf lesson and of course, keeping an eye for Cornwall’s friendly dolphins.
