Rob Michael from Flavour and Wine is one of the chefs collaborating with Three Mile Beach and offers soulful Cornish menus with a South Asian twist (inspired by his travels around Asia and Australia). As you sip a glass of bubbles, he’ll conjure up Cornish steamed mussels infused with lemongrass, garlic, ginger and coconut; pulled-pork tacos; Asian salads and mackerel with labneh and samphire, finished with a home-made sticky-toffee pudding and Cornish clotted cream.
To work this off, thankfully on the doorstep is Gwithian Beach – one of west Cornwall’s best beaches, framed by sand dunes and tall coastal grasses. It is loved as much by surfers, due to its rollers, as it is by families and friends due to its wide expanse of sand and rock pools. Early morning walks will find it empty of tourists – the sea glassy and the sand dotted with shells.
From surf lessons to yoga on the beach, Three Mile Beach makes much of its destination, offering a wide choice of activities to do in the surf and sand. By evening it’s also one of the finest spots to watch the sun go down – Godrevy Lighthouse looking resplendent agains the last of the rays. It’s Cornwall but reinvented.
