For centuries, Port Isaac was a busy maritime centre, and transported large volumes of coal, stone and other industrial materials, although many local residents are now predominantly reliant on fishing and tourism for their income. The village is also known for its very narrow streets, one of which is so narrow that it has been nicknamed the 'Squeezy Belly Alley'.
One of Cornwall's most picturesque coastal routes, the Lundy Bay Walk is known for its lush meadows and striking cliff-side views, and overlooks several unspoilt sandy coves. The route is now maintained by the National Trust, and contains a rich bird and butterfly population.
The best feature of Polzeath is its vast golden sandy beach, which attracts many holidaymakers during the school summer holidays, when lifeguards are on patrol.
