Why Holidays In Hayle Cornwall Are The Best

Beautiful gold sand and turquoise water in Hayle

With over three miles of golden sandy beaches, world-class attractions and a pretty town

full of amenities all on our doorstep, we know that holidays in Hayle Cornwall are simply the


Tucked away in the peaceful Cornish countryside, Calloose Holiday Park is the ideal spot for

a family holiday or break away. We are centrally located so it’s easy to set off and explore all

that Cornwall has to offer. Head west to Marazion where you can discover the magnificent

St Michael’s Mount. Tiptoe across the cobbled causeway at low tide to explore the mount

and castle, meet the locals and lose yourself in the myths and legends surrounding this

iconic landmark.

Continue to the historic maritime town of Penzance or the pretty fishing village of Newlyn

which has long lured artists and fisherfolk alike. Stroll along the promenade, take a picnic in

one of the gorgeous gardens, skim stones off the beach, swim in the Jubilee Pool lido or

sample the famous Jelbert’s ice-cream. It is from Penzance that the ferry across to the Isles

of Scilly departs, an island chain like no other, these sub-tropical isles are scattered in the

sea like jewels, surrounded by crystal clear waters and powder soft sand. We highly

recommend a day trip if time allows.

With west Cornwall within easy reach, a visit to the Lizard peninsula is so worth it for

isolated fishing communities, jaw-droppingly stunning beaches and the iconic Minack

Theatre. Keep on to arrive at Land’s End, the most south-westerly tip of Great Britain

offering fabulous views, a visitor centre and restaurant. On your return, take the stunning

B3306 towards Sennen and along to St Ives. Dubbed as one of the most scenic roads in

Europe, take your time to wend your way along the rugged Atlantic coastline, stopping to

explore along the way. From Pendeen Lighthouse to Geevor Tin Mine, magical Zennor with

its Mermaid along to St Ives then back to Calloose. We guarantee it will take your breath


We also benefit from being located a short drive from the ever-popular St Ives where you’ll

find a buzzing creative scene. Spend a while touring the sunlit gallery at the Tate St. Ives and

strolling the Barbara Hepworth Gallery and Garden before meandering the narrow streets

home to an array of boutiques, shops and cafes. Sit on the harbour-side with fish and chips

or an ice-cream to drink in the astonishing light in which St Ives basks.

It is not possible to talk about holidays in Hayle Cornwall without mentioning the beaches.

As we have already stated, there are over three glorious miles of golden sandy beaches just

a short drive away, each beach offering something different to the next. There are the wild

stretches of Gwithian, Mexico Towans and Hayle beach which lead towards the Hayle

estuary. Whilst it may look gentle, it is not safe to swim here due to currents and it being

the main channel into the harbour. It’s perfect for cooling off hot feet however with the

Porthkidney side remaining popular with beach goers all year long – there is no dog ban

here even during the summer so those bringing their four-legged friend can enjoy beach

time in the balmy summer months too. Round from Porthkidney is the alluring Carbis Bay

beach with twinkling turquoise waters lapping onto white soft sands. Perfect for swimming

or those with little ones, you may even spot the dolphins or seals who are known to

frequent the waters here!

We could go on forever about why holidays in Hayle Cornwall are the best but we suggest

you book a holiday and don’t just take our word for it!
