Port Isaac Cornwall
Port Isaac in North Cornwall has been a favourite places for holiday makers for many years. A traditional
fishing village, away from the crowds and unspoilt by much of the commercialism seen in many seaside resorts.
The Port Isaac is located on a natural sheltered inlet
with the oldest part of the village built around the harbour of
Port Isaac, busy with fishing vessels and shipping
vesels carrying local goods.
Today fishing boats still go in and out from the harbour on a daily basis. With the harbour breakwater protecting the bay from the Altantic Ocean. And at low tide the Port Isaac beach of sand and rock is ideal for rock pooling, crabbing, shell collecting.
The village of Port Isaac was built at the foot of Port Isaac Bay with steep hills surrounding it. And steep cliffs surrounding the bay. The cottages and streets of Port Isaac reflect its age, with narrow streets not designed or suited to car traffic, and small white washed cottages around the harbour. As the village grew, so houses were built on the hill sides leading down to the village centre.
The tranquility and idylic location of Port Isaac lead to its growth as a holiday destination. With several restaurants in Port Isaac specialising in seafood and much more, small shops for groceries, bread and other essentials, a pub, fish market and local arts and crafts including paintings, pottery, jewellery and more.
