This site offers an independent view of the area, based on the personal experience of people who have been involved in living in and visiting the area for more than three generations. It is aimed at the many repeat visitors who come back to the area throughout their lives and many new visitors who have discovered easier access via the new airport link and improved road systems.

In an attempt to create an independent information guide for existing and new visitors, gwithian.org.uk will offer a guide to quality information and services in the area.

We hope to increase the environmental awareness of visitors to help them to help us to keep the area as unique and special as it is. We hope to publish a short history of the Towans as well as offering important environmental details and an up to date guide to helping to preserve the area through sensible tourism. We hope to promote many of the events that take place locally and make people aware of the diverse range of opportunities to experience alternative tourism as well as the more traditional. Gwithian Towans remains very special and while ther is a huge increase in the number of companies letting chalets and promoting individual buisnesses , the need for an independent guide, run by people who know an love area remains vitaly important.
