According to local news outlet the Falmouth Packet, the popular Swanpool Beach Cafe was all but set on fire, after someone left a disposable barbecue in a wooden bin, while other barbecue fires saw emergency services take action on numerous occasions.
Local police even tweeted that they had deal with “lots” of incidents of anti-social behaviour in the area.
They tweeted: “Do you want a criminal record? Do you want your child to be criminalised?
“Speak to your child if involved or know who – this behaviour will not be tolerated.”
This has now prompted the manager of local hotel Membly Hall to issue an urgent warning to officials.
Bev Andrew, who claims the area was “like a warzone”, said: “It's not a pleasant area for visitors to take a stroll and many people have told me they find it intimidating and like a warzone, after all this is an area of outstanding beauty.

“As local planning is now not allowing hotels and guest houses to change use, this does not promote tourism.”
A spokesman for Falmouth and Helston Police took to social media to urge anyone with information about incidents to come forward.
They said: “Please think before causing #ASB.
“We are gathering information to identify those causing problems and dealing with them appropriately.
“Think about the consequences!
“We will not only look at prosecution but also at bail conditions and the antisocial behaviour system to control the company of those involved, where they can go to prevent re-offending and potentially reimbursing those affected.”
