The beach itself is quiet, visited in October, but has limited facilities. The gardens nearby were well worth a stroll through.

Unless you do not like swans there is nothing here to dislike! The Swanpool itself is a nature reserve hosting many types of aquatic bird life, mostly very well fed by children with bags of bread! You can walk around it in half an hour. By the Swanpool is a crazy golf course, useful if you wantschangefrom the beach and... More

only 1/2 mile walk from Falmouth down coast path. The beach is small but quieter than the main beach area in Falmouth. Toilets across the road and food availble.

Small beach with short coast path to lower end Falmouth beach from which road nearby leads you up to Pendennis castle area or into town by bus or good walker/cyclist. Small cafe with wifi and opportunities for some sea sports. Has bus stop. Pay car park and small crazy golf area.
