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.

Tregonhawke Beach (1 ¼ miles)

This is a mainly rocky and coarse sandy beach, accessed via a steep cliff path. Cafe for light refreshments nearby.

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.
