We’re blessed here in Falmouth with some of the most wonderful sea views in the country - if not the world.

With an extensive coastline punctuated by creeks, inlets, coves and beaches, it’s a beautiful spot to gaze out to sea and admire the azure views.

Located at the mouth of one of the world’s largest natural habours, there’s a watery vista almost everywhere in and around Falmouth. This makes it an ideal place for landlubbing holidaymakers to enjoy time by the sea.

While there are amazing sea properties all over Cornwall , we think our town has some of the finest places to stay for sea-gazing. Here’s our collection of some of the best places to stay in Falmouth for spectacular sea views.

Sea Glass

Appropriately named Sea Glass has large windows looking out over the water. This family holiday home is located close to the centre of Falmouth with speedy access to local shops, pubs and restaurants. The modern property enjoys a prominent position overlooking the river, where guests can gaze out at the beauty of the coastal scenery and watch the boats come and go.

Toby’s Quay

With a balcony that hovers above the water in Falmouth harbour, you could hardly get closer to the sea. It’s a beautiful spot to watch the hustle and bustle of river traffic and soak up the fine views. The spacious, two-bedroom holiday apartment is situated right in the heart of town so you don’t have to stray far for supplies. However, it’s worth exploring further along the coast and hopping on the ferry for a day trip to St Mawes.

The Crows Nest

The Crows Nest is located at Maenporth beach, just down the road from Falmouth. It’s a picturesque, little cove with safe swimming and wonderful walks nearby. The two-bedroom apartment enjoys wonderful sea views, especially from the outside balcony terrace. The holiday property is superbly equipped and includes access to an indoor heated pool, sauna and hot tub.

Staying at Spindrift is like holidaying on an ocean liner. With clean white lines, high-end furnishings and nautical decorations, it’s a wonderful seaside rental. The three-bedroom property is stunning but the best part is the outside decking area with spectacular views across the Helford River. Located above the Ferryboat Inn in Helford Passage, it’s a superb sea view property with wonderful walks in both directions along the coast.

Gylly Beach View

This luxury third-floor apartment boasts huge rooms where up to six people can soak up the splendour and sensational sea views in this beautifully renovated beachside property. Overlooking lush, sub-tropical gardens and Falmouth Bay, this fabulous holiday home is superbly located just yards from Gyllyngvase Beach, which is one of Cornwall’s finest. It’s a great place for a swim or to try out watersports, before dining at the acclaimed seafront restaurant. With Falmouth town and other beautiful beaches just a few miles away, it’s an idyllic spot for a week away by the sea.
