Places To Visit: Prussia Cove, Cornwall

Cornwall is full of hidden natural gems, like Prussia Cove - located near the town of Marazion, this rocky beach is a beautiful hideaway with incredible views, sea wildlife, and peace and quiet. We discovered Prussia Cove whilst driving to Marazion for dinner - there was a signpost to it, and we thought why not check it out on our drive back? So we had a quick snoop - down a hill and past a woodland, in 5 minutes we were greeted by an incredible view.

So we decided next day we'll grab a BBQ, some fish to cook, and head down there for a day of sunbathing.

OK, so maybe it rained a little the next day - so our sunbathing turned into more of a day of relaxing with the BBQ, ain't no rain gonna stop the food! We settled on one of the rocky cliffs near the water, and hid the BBQ away from the rain. Then Liam (Bear Grylls, you've got some competition) found limpets on the rocks. Limpets are water snails and stick to the side of rocks in the sea - and you can eat them. Even though I was a little sceptical at first, I Googled that limpets are actually safe to eat and are a commonly foraged food by the seaside - and you should forage them in any month that has an 'R' in it! So we BBQ'd the two limpets Liam foraged and I have to admit they were pretty tasty! Like eating escargot - they were just missing some garlic butter and parsley.

We also came back to Prussia Cove before heading back to Hampshire for a day of fishing and crab fishing. Spoiler alert: we didn't catch anything. I was 'crabbing' for about 3 hours with no luck, Liam had a little more fun fishing but not one bite. The weather was beautiful so we spent the day in the sunshine, although this time the BBQ was empty. Yes, we were so arrogant to think we were going to catch something to eat for lunch that we didn't even buy any back up food! Taught us a lesson.

Prussia Cove is a quiet rocky beach and although you will have families that come there, they don't stay for long and don't make too much noise simply because for kids I would think a sandy beach would be more fun. You also get fishermen (who actually catch things) and hikers. So for me, this was a beautiful escape. You can catch more of our Cornwall trip in the video below!
