Of course, its also important to find a less crowded beach and to know where open public conveniences are.
It is an effect of coronovirus I'm afraid, the MSE employees don't have the manpower at the moment to cover the whole board, so have closed certain boards for the time being. There was an announcement at the time.
For any poor weather, l'd suggest Charlestown where they have a Shipwreck Centre and Wheal Martin china clay which is interesting for the history of the area. If you'd do an hour's drive then I'd go to Flambards or Gweek Seal Sanctuary or Morwellham. Or there's the Eden Project. You could look at the websites to see if they're open /of interest to you both. 🙂
It depends on the child of course, but I was quite surprised last year to discover my son absolutely hated being taken on a different 'trip' every day. He was happiest on the beach digging his way to China. He enjoyed being in a familiar place. It might be best to try and find out what he wants to do as well. It was quite funny.., he dug and he dug, and it seemed to start off a fashion. After a couple of hours there were an awful lot of people of different ages doing exactly the same thing. I've never seen so many holes lolol. Yes they were filled in again. Of course, its also important to find a less crowded beach and to know where open public conveniences are.
My Mum and Dad live in Par!There is a restaurant on the beach, its Italian and really nice, you can get a coffee or a light snack there as well. THere is also a small indoor pool but not sure if that would be open.Fowey is about three miles away and there is a lovely small beach there called Readymoney, Polkerris is just around the coast (you could walk there over the cliff top) which also has a beach or their is Menabilly which you would need to drive too, bit of a walk to it but very safe and could always walk up to Gribben Head if he gets bored. You could explore the woods at Cardinham which is about 30 minutes drive.
