Happiness comes in waves
Where to start! Cornwall has some of the best beaches in the UK, if not the world. Choose from sheltered south coast beaches and harbours, secluded rocky coves and iconic north coast sand and waves. Our beaches have a big tidal reach so there’s plenty of scope for rock-pooling too. And the beach cafes, well… Here’s a few of our, and our guests’, beach picks.
Tredethick Farm is located beside the lower Fowey Valley, officially designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
South Coast beaches
With sheltered sandy coves, perfect for paddling and building sandcastles, these beaches are especially great for babies and toddlers.
Sheltered sandy cove with a funky, child-friendly restaurant and beach shop.
Small, sandy beach on the edge of Fowey with a beach café.
Lovely sheltered beach with a car park and beach shop.
A truly stunning location!
North Coast beaches
The Atlantic-facing North Coast beaches are brilliant for body boarding and surfing. Most have wide expanses of sand and are great for rock-pooling at low tide.
Probably the best for small children. Fairly compact, it has a stream running onto it that children love playing in. Café and toilets.
A dramatic setting with great facilities.
Huge sandy beach popular with surfers and families. Home to the Extreme Sports Academy.
Lovely expanse of sand where the Camel Estuary meets the sea.
