St Agnes

St Agnes in Cornwall is one of those little gems of a place to dive, being on the North Coast it isn’t very often the sea is calm enough to dive from the shore. Yet the abundance of marine life, ease of access across the beach to the shore line and fact that if you ask for a hot chocolate in Driftwood Spars you are in for a treat that will bring a smile to any cold divers lips.
