June begins the summer season in Cornwall and is the height of the tourist season. As a result, lines can be much longer and costs associated with hotel rooms and flights might be slightly higher. Because of the increase in the number of people, it is a good idea to plan your trip as early as possible to make sure that you have the reservations you need.

This is also a great time to visit because it is the first time all year that visitors can really enjoy the local beaches and all that they offer. Up until now, it has been too cold to spend any time in the water, but now that surface temperatures have climbed to 13°C (55°F) those that are hearty enough and have a wet suit can enjoy the waves. Additionally, the region experiences an average of 12 hours of sunshine per day making it the perfect time of the year to get some sun while on the sand.

Temperatures on land are also climbing as the average daily high is 16°C (61°F). While this is still cool enough to warrant a light jacket or long sleeves, it is considerably warmer than the temperatures felt just a few short months ago. The average overnight low temperatures are also much warmer with lows bottoming out at 11°C (52°F). Overall, the average daily temperature is 14°C (57°F).

The good news is that most of the rain that falls during this time of the year comes at night making it possible for tourists to have plenty of outdoor plans in their itinerary. While slightly wetter than May, this time of the year typically brings an average of 70mm of precipitation. This rain is spread over the course of 19 days. As a result, just over half of the month receives measurable precipitation.

Cornwell is home to a number of world-class golf courses and most are open to guests on a daily basis. One of the finest is Merlin Golf and Country Club that offers a beautiful 18-hole course, bar, restaurant and pro shop. 

Hit The Beach

Despite water temperatures of 13°C (55°F) in June, this is one of the more popular times of the year to hit the beach. Praa Sands is one of the more popular beaches in Cornwall because it is not only great for surfers, but for those who are looking to swim with their families. When the wind is out of the north, the region will get good enough waves, that it is one of the more popular spots for surfers of all abilities. However, the surf becomes calmer during much of the summer and allows for more swimming opportunities. Additionally, guests will enjoy the fact that there are plenty of nearby toilets, shops, pubs and campsites.

Reastaurants And Nightlife

The Lakeside Cabin Cafe is a unique mixture of one half café and the other half beach shop. Located along the northern coast of Cornwall, the café offers astounding views as guests enjoy a wide array of home cooked meals that are prepared using fresh local ingredients from local suppliers.

Chrissy's Tearoom is the place to be for a traditional high tea. Advance reservations are a necessity in this popular establishment as the food includes a large assortment of scones, sandwiches, cakes and more. It is the perfect location for both adults and children and with reasonably priced food, you don't have to be worried about breaking the bank. 

Known as the United Kingdom's only beach bar, The Watering Hole is a very popular spot during the summer months. Located on the west coast of Cornwall, the bar offers a view that can't be beaten along with a wide selection of beers and spirits. The bar also features plenty of fun events as well as live music to enjoy. Even if the weather is not cooperating, feel free to spend some time by the fire and enjoy watching the waves roll in.
