“An excellent Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

A perfect Cornish Beach only spoiled by dog owners who assume that it is theirs and theirs alone. That said it is lovely to stroll along and take in the sea air.

“Great Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Great beach for dog walking during the winter months (dogs are barred at certain times of the year (summer months). Nether the less still a great place to walk and take in the sea air, we saw 5 or so seals during our visit.

“Surf, sand and seals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

A great bay with all of the above. From building sandcastles, watching seabirds, and Gannets especially, feeding to just whiling away the time, this is a very special beach.

Well worth a visit, as even at peak times during the year, it's never packed out, and a great place to find beautiful little shells!
