Cadgwith is located on The Eastern side of the Lizard Peninsula. It is a beautiful fishing village with a number of traditional cottages that seems to have ignored the onset of the modern world.

In Cadgwith, the fishermen still go out in their small boats from the shingle cove to catch crabs in the time honoured tradition and visitors can soak up and enjoy this atmosphere in beautiful surroundings. The village has a small pub and there are a number of cottages to hire and a few bed and breakfasts.

There are two coves, the larger of which is where the boats go out from, while the other side of some rocks called the Todden is a smaller beach (Little Cove) with more of a mixture of sand in it where people can bathe.

One other noteable feature on the coastal path is where a cave has collapsed creating a sea blow out when the tide is in. This is known locally as the Devil's Frying Pan.
