Instagram Moments: Cornwall's Most Instagrammable Locations

Looking to jazz up your Instagram feed with some incredible scenery from Cornwall?

Then look no further, here are Cornwalls most Instagrammable places! It's an absolute no brainer that there are trillions of places in the Duchy that are super "insta-worthy." Every single beach, orange burnt sunset and quaint fishing village are fit for the gram, but where are those real "WOW" Cornish places that deserve to take the top spot?

St Michaels Mount, cornwall’s little island -

It might be worth checking the tide times before heading to St Michaels Mount. The best time to get those gram pictures are when the tide is out and the causeway to the mount is fully visible. There's nothing more show-stopping than an island that's reachable by foot.

Lost Gardens of Heligan, gardens in cornwall -

It's no wonder that the Lost Gardens of Heligan keeps winning all of the travel awards! Voted as UK's Number 1 Attraction, LGOH is FULL of those insta worthy moments. Find bridges that swoop over the trees, cute green houses and tropical looking gardens - they even throw in a few extras, such as pumpkins at Halloween and Christmas decorations from November.

Climbing across the Lost Gardens of Heligan Bridge isn't as easy as it looks.


The Scarlet Hotel, for hot tub views in cornwall -

How many times have I seen those famous cliff side hot tubs on Instagram? Only a million times, BUT I still become full of envy every single time I see one. The Scarlet Hotel in Newquay is home to one of Cornwall's most luxurious spas with stunning views over Mawgan Porth.

Bedruthan Steps, cornwall’s great ocean road -

An absolute favourite in the blogger world. One of my favourite images of Bedruthan Steps was taken by Wanderlust Chloe - she managed to capture the sheer height of the rocks and the views right over the beach.

The Minack Theatre, cornwall’s outside theatre -

Are we in Greece or in the UK? The Minack Theatre is undoubtably one of the most coolest places in Cornwall. The story behind the Minack Theatre is also an incredible one - ever thought about building a stone theatre in your back garden?

Pedn Vounder and Porthcurno -

This year the social media world went mad for Pedn Vounder and Porthcurno. After a video went viral (oops) people flocked in their hundreds to see Cornwall's real tropical paradise for themselves. There are plenty of platforms from the top of the coastal path which offers incredible views right over the beach. Also, find the wild ponies to the left of the coastal path. Read more about my trip to Pedn Vounder here.

Eden Project, Cornwall’s greenhouse -

The worlds largest greenhouse! What could be quirkier than that? If you can't make it to the Amazon Ranforest, then look no further. Either climb up to the aerial platform at the top of the 165-foot-high Rainforest Biome, or see if you can make it across the bridge before getting caught in the rain.

Cardinham Woods -

Are you looking for that perfect location to shoot some autumnal pictures? At the right time of year, Cardiham is full of burnt oranges, yellows and reds. If you're looking for something a little 'creepier' then Cardinham is also for you - it might just take a little bit longer to reach the heart of the woods (keep heading up the hills).

Gwithian Beach -

With miles of golden sands, Gwithian beach has plenty of area to photograph. The sand dunes protect you from the wind and offers a fantastic backdrop - plus, best sunsets ever!

Kudhva, Cornwall’s tree top houses -

I honestly don't think that tree houses will ever get boring - but are these wood-like cabins even classed as tree houses? Who knows! Kuhdva is quite easily one of the quirkiest accommodation settings in Cornwall. Located on the outskirts of Tintagel, Kudhva is a fantastic space for creatives and architects - now the phone signal isn't all that great, but we all know that it's possible to save an Insta story for later... (read more here...)

RMS Mulheim, shipwrecks in Cornwall

Between Lands End and Sennen you will find the RMS Mulehim Shipwreck. The wreck ran aground back in 2003 and still remains stuck on the rocks. Granted, the wreck is very dangerous so PLEASE do be careful if you visit. For more information, read my post about the RMS Mulheim here.

St Nectan’s Glen, waterfalls in Cornwall -

These waterfalls look like they've just been plucked out of a fairytale - with a 60ft waterfall which cascades its way down through a hole in the rocks. A little different to the coastline, but just as beautiful.
