It would be silly to think that all we get in Cornwall is sunshine and beautiful sunsets... But as long as we're careful, stand clear of the cliff edge and stay away from the shoreline, I do know a few good spots that you can still go to when a storm rolls through. And, with those rules in mind, they should be pretty safe spots too - allowing you to storm watch from a carpark, cafe or pub at the majority!
Here's a list of our top five favourite places for storm watching in Cornwall, how to get there and what you need to know!
Perhaps the most photographed place in Cornwall when the wind picks up and the waves get rough. Nonetheless, it is an incredible place to watch the waves crash against the cliffs and high above the church, with the best views being from the west side of the harbour and, if you're lucky, a place to park on Mount Pleasant Road.
Getting there: Heading towards Helston on the south coast, turn off from the A394 onto the B3304 and follow the road to Porthleven. In the town center, follow signposts for Kittos Field carpark (postcode TR13 9JX) or try Mount Pleasant Road on the west side of the harbour.
