Explore the Lizard Peninsula coastline where sea meets cliff and come face-to-face with the rugged shore amongst rocks and waves. Coasteering involves donning a wetsuit before being guided round the Lizard headland to explore caves, negotiate passing waves, swim to islands and jump off cliffs.
It’s a great group activity that encourages peer support and a bit of bravery, for all ages. It’s also a fantastic way to experience the coast in its wild glory.
As swimming forms part of the activities you must have reasonable confidence in outdoor waters.
If you love the great outdoors make sure you book your activity summer break at Mullion Cove Hotel today, and create your own adventure on the Lizard Peninsula. Our stunning cliff top location is only moments away from each of these activity centres with sea view rooms and lounges that overlook some of the crags and waves you’ll be tackling.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
