Quiz: St Piran’s Day – Cornish Beach or Caribbean paradise?
The idea of ‘the tropical paradise’ occupies a unique place in the consciousness of every traveller. Each Summer thousands of us shell out vast chunks of our salaries to recline on a Caribbean beach, preferably in the company of cocktails, capuchins and crystal clear sea.
But why splash out on a transatlantic plane ticket when a train to Falmouth might just as easily suffice? Cornwall may not boast tropical temperatures, most of the time anyway, but some of the beaches might surprise you with their Barbadian-like beauty.
So, to celebrate St Piran’s Day, we’ve selected an assortment of Cornish and Caribbean coastlines, and we’re not going to tell you which is which.
