Nearest pub

Devon and Cornwall Inn (1 mile)

Located in the centre of the village, this pub offers real ales alongside home cooked food and bar snacks. Warm yourself by the open fire in winter and enjoy the sun in the beer garden during summer.

Nearest beach

Tregonhawke Beach (250 yards)

Making up part of the three-mile long Whitsand Bay, Tregonhawke Beach is a great spot to sit and while away the hours. Access is via a series of fairly steep steps or along from neighbouring beaches. Just be careful though as although low tide reveals large tracts of sand, at high tide this is all but covered up. Popular for surfing, swimming is only advised in lifeguarded areas.

Lovely stretch of beach

You can walk for a few miles at low tide...beautiful sandy beach with rocky outcrops every so often...steep climb but a couple of options for tea along the way!

Really easy to get to along the coastal path..if you fancy a slightly easier walk head up on to the road once you have gone up the first set of steps and walk along to beach view cafe for the descent onto the beach (check the tide times) but it’s a lovely 3 mile beach and completely unspoilt. Eddies cafe is particularly good after all the walking and before you start the climb back up the steps!!

Unspoilt!

Parking is first come first served on the road at top. Not for the faint hearted or those with small children as the way up and down is very steep but once at the bottom the views are fantastic. Miles of sandy beach, well served by lifeguards within the flagged area. Cafe half way down. Not for those looking for a family beach with facilities but good for beach games, paddling and beachcombing. Go on a clear day when it's less windy.

Perfect for views far out to sea, large sandy beach well worth the climb with a welcoming cafe.

Nearest walk

Cremyll to Portwinkle (2 ¾ miles)

An interesting thirteen mile hike along the Cornish Coastal Path with stunning coastal views taking in Mount Edgcumbe Country Park and several pretty Cornish villages with obligatory watering holes! Make sure you plan your journey back as public transport in the area is limited.

Coastal walks

Would highly recommend this and all local walks in this area. You can make the walks as long or short as you wish, little villages to stop off for a lunch or coffee and everyone offered a warm welcome to us and our dog!

Nearest town

Kingsand (1 ¾ miles)

Together with its twin village, Cawsand, Kingsand is a little piece of holiday heaven. Tiny, twisting streets, a string of three beaches separated by rocks (excellent rockpooling to be had here) and calendar-perfect fishermen’s cottages have inspired many a photographer here. If you’re looking for an oasis of peace, you’ve come to the right place.

Cawsand

A lovely (long) walk from Captain Blake’s Retreat around the Rame peninsula leads you to the delightful villages of Cawsand and Kingsand. Lovely narrow lanes, great little bay with a visiting seal, and the restaurant Bay serving very good food.

Also nearby

The Devonport Inn (2 miles)

Lovely pub with a gorgeous view and the food looked fab. We walked from Captain Blake’s retreat (about 35 mins downhill) and caught the bus back. The bus stopped at the top of the road. Both the bus and pub dog friendly!

Finnygook Beach (2 ¾ miles)

Beautiful sand and pebble beach, popular with surfers and bodyboarders. Short walk from car park (get there early in summer!) and cafe nearby. Finnygook is the eastern end of Portwrinkle, which itself consists of two beaches and marks the western extremity of Whitsand Bay.

Gorgeous sandy beach just the right size for letting children run free while small enough to still keep an eye on them. Convenient car park and small cafe. Slightly off the beaten track so a great place to get away from the crowds.

Tregantle Beach (1 ¼ miles)

At the westerly end of Whitsand Bay, Tregantle Beach seems to go on forever in a haze of golden sand and blue sea. Although there is some beach left at high tide, at low tide the sea recedes to reveal huge tracts of golden sand. A year-round dog-friendly beach, you can play games with your four-legged friend along the shoreline, playing chase with the water as it reaches in and out. If you would like to go for a swim, it's best to wait until the summer time when the beach is lifeguarded, as there can be strong rip currents.

Huge sandy beach which never feels crowded, and has wonderful crowd-free surfing.

Polhawn Cove (1 ¾ miles)

To reach this small cove you will need to be willing to climb over the rocks. The beach is very secluded with fingers of rock at low tide. There are several rock pools to be explored.
