The location Falmouth is Cornwall's premier south coast location, steeped in maritime history and renowned for its sandy beaches, spectacular coastline and scenery. The area is an all year round resort and boasts some of Europe's most regarded sailing waters. This historical town presents a fascinating mix of charming individual boutiques, shops and well known high street names. Falmouth has a reputation for its fresh sea food and an abundance of cafés and restaurants provide a selection of worldwide cuisine and traditional local food. The town is renowned as the start and finish of many transatlantic races and as one of the world's great water sport centres. Falmouth has been host to the Tall ships and more recently the "J" class racing yachts. The waterways around the town provide a gateway to an acclaimed network of sheltered estuaries and hidden coves.
North Parade follows the Penryn River revealing delightful views to Trevissome, Flushing and the Roseland before widening to the waters of the Carrick Roads. Falmouth's very "raison d'etre" is as a consequence of its location and outstanding natural features including the third deepest natural harbour in the world. It is therefore surprising that a town so steeped in all things maritime has such little access to the water. North Parade and its approaches provide the only domestic water frontage access in the town and the principle marina facility.
