About St Anthony

Pleasant coastal hamlet with a "picture postcard" look. It is situated in south-facing position at the edge of Gillan Creek and is backed by lovely wooded countryside.

A dominant feature is the lighthouse some 65 feet above the sea, this was built in 1835 to serve as a guide for shipping entering the Carrick Roads. From this dramatic headland there are unrivalled views over Falmouth Bay, one of the world's most beautiful natural harbours, and for those who take pleasure from walking there are miles of glorious coastal footpaths to tramp.

Local pub landlords will regale you with tales of times when the region was dependent upon fishing and smuggling, these days the local revenue is mainly from tourism for this beautiful coastline is brim full with visitors during the summer months.

The area offers a wide choice of gorgeous little creeks and bays to explore, sailing, fishing, and plenty of opportunity for sea-sports including surfing. Holiday accommodation is plentiful, with a choice covering luxury hotels to friendly bed and breakfast homes and spacious caravan parks.
