Cornwall has more than its fair share of sandy expanses. It is the UK's most south-westerly county and offers all things from watersport beaches such as Newquay, to pretty little havens like Kynance Cove. Cornwall is home to the popular little fishing town of Looe and the protected Roseland Peninsula.
