Celebrations are being held across the county this year to celebrate 60 years of Cornwall being recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Twelve different regions across Cornwall from the most southerly point to the far north are included in this well-deserved recognition. The delightful fishing village of Port Isaac is located centrally to three of the most attractive regions within the AONB designation.
Just to the west of the rugged Bodmin Moor region and just to the north of the beautiful Camel Estuary region, Port Isaac itself nestles at the heart of the North Cornish coastal region of outstanding natural beauty which extends from fabulous Polzeath Beach twenty-five miles north to Widemouth Bay. This stunning stretch of coastline also incorporates enigmatic Tintagel and gorgeous Boscastle.
Cornwall attracted the accolade of AONB in 1959 in recognition of the diversity, beauty and splendour of its varied and dramatic landscapes. The designation of Area of Natural Beauty provides protection to the areas within its boundaries.
