Cornwall

3.9
Although most tourists come for the region's long and diverse coastline, things to do in Cornwall include many versatile non-seaside activities. Visit the birthplace of legendary King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, where you can ponder over the artifacts that provide this myth with certain credibility. Crossing a man-made causeway from the coastal town of Marizon will take you to St. Michael's Mount, an island with a picture-perfect castle. Spend a leisurely day on Fistral Beach, a stretch of golden sand in Newquay where you can swim, take a surfing lesson, or simply bask in the sun.
