Beaches around Falmouth

Heading down to Falmouth for a week camping at Tregunwith Farm on Saturday morning, putting the boat in at Mylor Harbour. Can anyone recommend some good local beaches and pubs to visit?

Fingers crossed I'm not putting the tent up in the rain on Saturday.

After our week In Falmouth moving east to that RIB.net favourite, Penmarlem for a week.

Lantic Bay near Looe. Great beach, and you can only get to it by boat!

Mollers, there was a pub called the Smugglers? mentioned in a magazine last month, any good?

Did the cafe at Mylor meet with the wife's approval?

No, 'Smuggler's' has been taken over by Tregothnan Estates, the freehold owners. Overpriced, pretentious rubbish.

Mylor brekkie was excellent.

TBH, top grub on the waterfront is pricey. The terrace at The Idle Rocks, St. Mawes is sublime when the sun is out.

The Ferryboat, Helford River, excellent for shellfish.

Most of the eateries in Falmouth are average, Rick Stein's chippy is worth a visit.

Hi. I only have a Bombard Aerotec 380 but we have launched most days off Maenporth beach. Staff really helpful at "Life's a Beach". Cafe great. Many boaters anchor up and take refreshments. Also plenty of private coves to anchor off, although some are used for skinny dipping. I love this area. Hope you do. Sadly we leave tomorrow.

If you're eating out from Penmarlam try The Famous Punch Bowl Inn in Lanreath. The food is good and it's not tourist trap prices.

Mollers, how much either side of high is the Ferry Boat Inn accessible using the pontoon?

All states, they push/pull it to and fro with the ferry. Run it by the ferryman (Nick) before tying up.

Awesome lunch at the Ferry Boat in Helford Passage. Shame Mollers has eaten all the local Oyster, the river ha devoid of eating sizes ones now apparently. Made do with the mussels instead!

Now back at Mylor Harbour waiting for the tide to come in so we can launch.

Fingers crossed this afternoons weather holds for a few days.

The Galleon Inn in Fowey does excellent value (but not fancy) food and a good range of beers. Right on the waterside and ridiculously easy to get to... Just tie up on the harbour visitors' pontoon a few yards away, accessible at any tide state. Pub gets busy though.

The Fowey Gallants Sailing Club and Royal Fowey Yacht Club also do good reasonably priced food (and welcome visiting seafarers!). Both again on the waterfront not far from the pontoon.
