Falmouth, like many of the coastal towns in Cornwall, is a summer hotspot, and for good reason! Falmouth boasts stunning beaches and has a vibrant atmosphere during both the day and the night.

You will find no lack of things to do in Falmouth or the Cornwall region in general. There are several beaches in Falmouth, and within walking distance of the hostels in town. Gyllyngvase Beach is one of the more popular beaches, and often gets rather crowded during the summer months. If you want a quieter beach, head to Trefuis Beach, which is not as crowded and crazy. The National Seal Sanctuary is worth paying a visit to if you want to get up close to some marine life. A refuge for local seals and their pups, the sanctuary has grown considerably over the years, and you can now also see otters and sea lions. Fishing is an important industry in Falmouth, and the large harbor bustles with life and production.

Nightlife can be reasonably boisterous in Falmouth. As any other summer destination, there are bound to be crowds of holiday-goers intent on partying. There are several clubs in Falmouth, as well as plenty of pubs and quieter locations for evening activities.
