RNLI lifeboat station, interesting design with the launch ramp. It is about 1 hours walk from Harlyn Bay car park, along the coast path.

If you are in North Cornwall this is a must visit. An incredible lifeboat station with an interesting exhibition and uniform for kids to dress up in. Amazing views of the coast line and even spotted some local seals.
