Students sitting on a beach

If you don鈥檛 have a car, taking a boat trip from the Barbican is a great way to explore. One of the most popular trips is to Cawsands, a tiny fishing village. We found a tapas place with a stunning view, and the village itself is very cute. When we got back to the beach lots of people were swimming in the sea and enjoying the sunny weather.
