Naturally Active

St Austell is at the very heart of Cornwall, surrounded by beautiful, sweeping coasting and picturesque countryside and its natural attributes offer a wealth of outdoor activities to both residents and visitors alike.

The curve of St Austell Bay with its many sandy beaches is a haven for water sports and family holidays, with opportunities for sailing, rowing, surfing, diving and fishing.

This area is literally St Austell’s ‘active theatre’ which appeals to everyone but perhaps especially to a younger demographic.

The area is also fantastic for walking, riding and cycling with many woodlands and trails; splendid inland and coastal paths to enjoy the majestic scenery such as the Pentewan Valley Trail from St Austell down to the coast at Pentewan village and beach, or the Clay Trails leading north west up the valley from St Austell towards the China Clay Country Park at Wheal Martyn.
