Exploring the tranquil estuary of St Mawes by canoe

Since being young, I’ve often holidayed in Cornwall. For the past few years we’ve enjoyed a week in spring on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula. The week is spent walking, cooking and eating fresh, local produce and doing plenty of silent reading. This year, three of us tried kayaking for the first time. We hired kayaks from St Mawes Sit-On Kayaks and spent a gorgeous afternoon exploring the tranquil estuary and rugged Cornish coastline.

It was a real treat to see the coastline from a different view…and at a slower pace. We were thoroughly energised by the experience – it was fun to be out on the open sea, just us, nature, a few fishing boats and bigger ships on the horizon – and we certainly enjoyed our well-deserved pint of locally made cider in the pub afterwards.
