Nestling on the beautiful Camel Estuary, Padstow’s colourful harbour is surrounded by pastel-washed fishermen’s cottages and a glorious collection of shops and restaurants. Meanwhile, just a short ferry ride away is the pretty village of Rock. Their location on the stunning north Cornish coast makes them hugley popular with the young and old alike, offering an ecclectic mixture of sedate cream teas in Padstow and Atlantic rollers at Polzeath, wildlife on the estuary and nightlife in Rock. All this combines to make sure that this area is one of the most popular holiday detsinations in the UK. With clarity and affection, Joanna Jackson chronicles in photos a year in the life of this most charming corner of North Cornwall, from the festive to the picturesque, from the enduring pagan traditions of the 'Obby 'Oss and 'Mummers', to spectacular land and seascapes through the seasons.

The South West Coast Path is the longest of Britain’s National Trails, following the spectacular coastline for 630 miles around the southernmost tip of England from Somerset all the way to Dorset. This volume of the Official National Trail Guide, published in association with Natural England, features the second section of 169 miles (271 km), from Padstow in north Cornwall to Falmouth on the south coast. From the surfing mecca of Newquay and St Ives’s golden beaches it hugs the rugged clifftops round Land’s End and the Lizard – as far west and south as it is possible to go in Britain – visiting serpentine harbours and craggy coves such as Cadgwith and Porthcurno with its dramatic open-air theatre. Besides truly wild sea-life like seals and fulmars, the Path offers the only chance anywhere in the country to see the delightful red-beaked chough. For the holiday stroller or the long-distance walker, this official guide contains everything you need. This new edition has been fully updated and revised, and completely re-designed with many new photographs, for 2013. It features Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps for the whole route.

Current climatic and environmental trends mean that a large number of important coastal destinations across the globe are under threat of change or gradual disappearance. Many of these locations are also significant tourist destinations, such as the Great Barrier Reef, the Everglades National Park or large swathes of the Mediterranean basin. Tourism activity both exacerbates the problem and highlights the importance of protecting these often fragile environments. This book discusses threats to, and consequences of, tourism growth and the impacts of climate change on such coastal zones. It examines policy initiatives, local and national options for managing the potential crisis and recommends steps and management options towards ameliorating projected impacts on coastal tourism infrastructure. This is an important book for researchers and students of leisure and tourism, land-use planning, environmental and coastal management and all those interested in and working with the environment, conservation and sustainability.
