Best beach. Sandy with rock pools, lovely rocks to climb, a hidden pool tide allowing, good waves for kids to jump, or to surf. Lovely shop for any supplies needed, hot food shack along from there with lovely food, toilets a short walk away.

Lots of rock pools, stunning views and great for snorkeling and sand castle building. the youth hostel does great food and directly ahead is one of the largest tidal rock pools that you can swim in. A very special place that often gets over looked... More

Lovely dog friendly beach with a good sized sea pool in the rocks and food at the YHA, well worth a visit.

We really enjoyed our time on this easy-access beach, it was off season so we had it to ourselves. It had lots of little sheltered sandy coves - we sat on the rocks of one and enjoyed the warmth of the March sun. We explored the rockpools, and watched the waves crashing in. Lovely memories of Cornwall!

We took advantage of the super low tide to visit Treyarnon Bay, a beach we had ventured to before. A small navigation error was soon corrected and we ended up in the lane to take us to the car park at the caravan site. Note that this is pay & display so take cash! The beach is a narrowish sandy,... More

Visited here on Mothering Sunday. Beach fairly empty so able to enjoy it at it's natural beauty.Walked across beach and back and then up along the cliff path. the views are some of the best in Cornwall. Crashing white waves on rocks and views round the neighbouring bays. At low tide there are rock pools to explore including those large... More

The best beach for rock poolsl I have seen. Not a place for children to go unsupervised, but plenty of open sand away from the rocks. I know of at least two pools big enough to swim in. Recommended for at least a full day trip. Take supplies, shopping is very limited

Yet another stunning beach in Cornwall. Beautiful for walking our two young pups (we visited just before the school half terms so we're able take them onto the beaches) If taking animals check the beaches allow them first. For us the perfect finish to a perfect holiday

Great sandy beach with convenient parking. Lots of rock pools and one the size of a swimming pool, which is great in the summer for a dip ..... Bit cold when we went though!
