Whether you’re hunting for rare fauna along the wind-beaten cliffs, searching for signs of the elusive otter or casting your gaze to the open seas for Cornwall’s resident dolphins, this stretch of coast is abundant in nature’s most remarkable wildlife.

As well as that fantastic mining heritage, there's also a plethora of wildlife to discover. Both on the cliffs and in the ocean and in this amazing habitat that makes up the Tin Coast

Steve Crummay from Explore in Cornwall made this short film, guiding us along the coast path to discover the wildlife of the Tin Coast.
