A Spot Of Crabbing

A trip to the seaside wouldn’t be the same without a spot of Crabbing!
Find a suitable spot on the harbour wall or even from the rocks beneath our terrace. No need for a hook, just a bit of patience – tie some bacon on your line, drop it into the water and wait. The Shore Crab, the most common in Cornwall, needs a little coaxing – about five minutes should do it! The Idle Rocks has complimentary crabbing kits for children and we can always find a spare net or two and some bait.
