    23 Pictures That Prove Cornwall Is The Only Place To Be In Spring

    Clear blue sea, empty beaches, and so many colourful flowers.

    1. The Cornish coast starts coming back to life again in the spring.

    2. Wildflowers begin to pop up.

    3. Making the dramatic coastline even more beautiful.

    4. All the gardens are a riot of colour.

    5. The sea is still freezing, but it's also so damn blue.

    6. You can get a beach ice cream without contending with the summer crowds.

    7. And your four-legged friends are probably still allowed on the beach, too.

    8. It might be kind of windy, but you can feel the weather changing and summer on its way.

    9. Maybe you'll even have the beach to yourself.

    10. Tourist attractions are much less busy than usual, but still 100% worth a visit.

    11. You might even spot a seal pup or two.

    12. And you could still catch some dramatic waves.

    13. It's the perfect time of year to enjoy a hot doughnut on your walk.

    14. Or, of course, a cornish pasty.

    15. You can sit outside, but it's not too hot to enjoy a proper Cornish cream tea.

    16. And if the sun's out it'll even be warm enough to enjoy a pint of ale outside, too.

    17. You'll see lots of bluebells out in the woods.

    18. And blossom trees leaving candy-coloured confetti everywhere.

    19. And the ferns are all coiled up ready to unfurl.

    20. In fact, even on a grey spring day towns like St Ives look beautiful.

    21. But when the sun is shining, everyone gets just a little bit happier. Even the local cats.

    22. So be quick and enjoy it before the summer crowds arrive.

    23. Because nothing beats Cornwall in the spring.
