Cornwall has the most beautiful beaches in the world. There I said it. I know this is a contentious issue and it's inevitably a subjective view. Some people might prefer the palm fringed beaches of Hawaii or Thailand. But for me the windswept beaches of Cornwall have a rugged beauty that is unmatched anywhere in the world. Of course, as a local, I'm more than a little bit biased. I've been visiting many of these beaches all my life so have a strong personal connection with these glorious, sandy beaches.
