This is one of the best beaches in Cornwall with lots of things to do including surfing, jet skiing and beach activities. There are restaurants nearby with lots of parking available for just £7 for the whole day. Get here early for a parking space.

Busy, clean, and scenic but with some useful onsite amenities. Great for board sports. Would happily visit again!

Full of surfers that are fab to watch, a few lovely places to sit and eat/drink and watch the world go by. Great to let the kids keep playing whilst we retreated to the terrace for a drink and could still see them. Lovely sand, lots of shells and pebbles to collect too.

A Great British Beach - must be nearly a mile long, sandy, often has good waves, RNLI station, car park and cafe cluster including Rick Stein and the Stable. Take care to avoid the rocks at edges but these are probably great for rock pooling.

This beach was a little piece of heaven, it was clean and very peaceful. It was easy to get to and surprisingly not very busy. The views were amazing, a definite return location, either as a couple or with the family.
