Cape Cornwall

Where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Irish Sea.

About Cape Cornwall

The term cape is the point of land where two bodies of water meet. Cape Cornwall is one of only two capes in the United Kingdom, the other being Cape Wrath in Scotland.

As two bodies of water meet, you get tremendous amounts of water movement. This combined with the massive tides we get off our coast. This brings up food from the depths and makes for a delicious soup of biomass. This is the secret to our abundance of life seen off the Cornish coast and Cape Cornwall is the geological epicentre of this occurrence.
