Beautiful spot, simply stunning few hours spent there this summer- which has been completely marred by AS parking who run the parking outside the museum. We got fined £100 for driving around a car park trying to find a spot and even longer to get...More

Lovely beach but now it’s classed as one of the best it’s getting really busy. I love the steps up to the Minnak theatre but not for the faint hearted! Little country road down to it so get there early or you will be involved...More

We stopped here at the weekend on a coastal drive from Marazion back round to St Ives. Gorgeous beach - turquoise seas and we were lucky enough to spot a couple of dolphins.

I do not think I can say anything that other reviewers have not said. This beach is simply stunning. I recommend that you go when the tide is low. We will definitely be going back, this place is world class.

Beautiful sand with crashing waves. Has lifeguards on hand during the main season. Well sheltered beach and when you need something else to do you can always walk the cliff path or visit the cafe.

The most gorgeous beach. Lovely sandy walk down past the original cable hut. No swimming when we went as the waves were huge - could not stop taking photos! Would visit again and again.

Superb views and beach. Absolutely stunning bay to watch waves and seals. Park in bottom car park not the museum one as it's cheaper

It is genuine but I think it’s disgraceful. I would definitely keep up a battle as you paid. This is not right and judging by the comments this is a real problem and someone is making a pretty penny out of this. Good luck... More
