It is a secret known to holiday makers who flock to Falmouth’s sunny beaches and sheltered coves all year round. Cornwall has in fact now been classified as having a subtropical climate – putting it on a par with parts of Vietnam and Mexico. The county has got much hotter over the past decade, according to the latest meteorological data. On average, temperatures stay above 10C (50F) for more than seven months of the year, meaning it can be classed as subtropical. So, why not give Falmouth a try? You might just be pleasantly surprised!
