Sea temperatures reach record breaking heights
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
Waters have been recorded at temperatures as high as 20 degrees celsius last week and over the weekend, making them almost as hot as the Mediterranean.
Guests at luxury hotels in Fowey have been commenting all week about how warm the waters have been, and now we've seen the proof that they really are as warm as they feel.
That's great news for us, as we love to see guests come in from the beach at the end of another warm summer's day with sea salt in their hair - before heading into our rosette winning restaurant for a delicious evening meal.
The recorded temperatures off the Cornish coast are at a seven year high and with more sunshine forecast they should continue to climb.
If they get much warmer it could mean it'll become difficult to cool off on a hot summer afternoon!
The reason for the high temperatures is that we've had a calm hot summer, with little wind aside from a pleasant cooling breeze only a small ocean swells as well as mild nights - which have meant the sea's retained heat overnight.
