Cornwall is located in the far southwestern section of England on a peninsula that extends into the Celtic Sea and is bordered also by the English Channel. The "county town" is Truro. The most southerly point of England is located in Cornwall at Lizard Point, where you will find a lighthouse. The Lizard Peninsula surrounds the lighthouse and has a rugged and rocky coastal area that finds a relief in the small sandy bays that appear along the coast. The area is full of old fishing boats lining the rustic harbors, charming beach cafes lighting up the village and plenty of pubs with a full selection of seafood caught by the locals. The north coast faces the Celtic Sea and has a wilder nature. While the south coast is known as the "Cornish Riviera" and some of the top vacation spots in Cornwall are Falmouth, Penzance and Truro. Cornwall also has exceptional golden sandy beaches with quiet coves and rockpools. The top beaches in Cornwall are: The Strangles, Daymer Bay, Watergate Bay, Gwithian Towans, Porthminster Beach, Gwenver Beach, Porthcurno, and Kynance Cove. A vacation in Cornwall is also an experience in the Celtic culture from centuries ago, when the Celts ruled Europe. As many of the local citizens still speak the Celtic language in Cornwall.
