Beautiful place now, at least outwardly, recovered from the devastating flashflooding in 2004. Spectacular entrance from the sea - if you can, go on a day with a bit of wind and a swell running. Try and use park and ride though - in the...More

This picturesque little harbour came to national prominence because of the floods that devastated the area in 2004. They are rightly remembered throughout the village with signs pointing out the height the water lever reached on various buildings, and a short video in the Visitor's...More

Small harbour with a burbling stream running into it, very picturesque. Worth a climb up the valley sides to get a great view

The Harbour looks gorgeous and from there one can climb the cliffs and get a better view of both the Harbour and the sea. It's a must if you like the rough Cornish coast.

This little harbour is just along from the national trust shop and cafe - it’s worth the short walk and slight climb to see the views of the rugged coast line.

Hadn't been here for a few years and was pleased to see the place had recovered from the terrible flooding. It was a sunny day as we walk the length of the harbour, climbed up the rocks at the end of the quay wall and...More

A lovely traditional old world harbour with real fishermen. There is access to the harbour entrance on foot but it is very uneven and great care is needed - not for the less able. The actual harbour is set in an inlet from the coast...More

A wonderful unspoilt harbour to visit. There are one or two "tourist shops", but still well worth a visit. On a clear day stunning views are all around. A large car park is only a short walk away for easy access to the harbour.

When visiting Boscastle a walk down to the harbour is a must, it is quite small & well protected from the sea beyond, so very safe for the fishermen & their boats etc.
