A family-run village pub with home cooked food and a countryside beer garden.
A glorious stretch of sandy beach, making way to a number of big rocks. Access to this beach is by a choice of two steep coastal paths.
An interesting thirteen mile hike along the Cornish Coastal Path with stunning coastal views taking in Mount Edgecombe 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.
The first and last Cornish town, Torpoint lies opposite Plymouth, separated from Devon by the Tamar River. It offers the best of both worlds; close proximity to all the urban delights of Plymouth, which has excellent shopping, eating and entertainment, and easy access to Cornwall’s most easterly beaches, like Cawsand, Kingsand and Downderry.
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.

...But the cafe was good - fast & friendly service while the rain lashed the outside! Nice walks though.
really great pub! Dog friendly
We took our two dogs there on new years eve for lunch. very friendly, great food and beer.
we also had their take away fish and chips one night which was some of the best fish and chips we have ever had!! well worth a visit!!
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.
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.
Perfect for views far out to sea, large sandy beach well worth the climb with a welcoming cafe.
This long stretch of sandy beach can seem endless, around 4 miles in all, stretching out to almost reach Rame Head.
Huge sandy beach which never feels crowded, and has wonderful crowd-free surfing.
Five hundred and fifty years of history.
Wonderful parkland with many walks and beautiful gardens with views of Plymouth.
