You'll find plenty of places to visit near Penzance: Newquay (Fistral Beach Bar, Watergate Bay, & more) and Perranporth Beach (in Perranporth). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Hayle Towans Beach, step off the mainland to explore St. Michael's Mount, and take in nature's colorful creations at Trengwainton Garden.
