Swanpool is always a pleasure to visit, with beautiful sea views and a fairly quiet beach, there is plenty of parking, and at low tide plenty of space to sit

Lovely walk from Gylly beach around the coast path to Swanpool before heading round Swan Pool itself. Lovely quiet corner tucked away but so close to Falmouth town centre. Choice of two eateries there as well.

Lovely little beach with high surf on a wild day and a small sandy beach within a short drive from Falmouth. The cafe has a good range of drinks and great muffins. Well worth a stop on a windy day when there are less tourists.

Despite the locals begging us to keep its secret we have to report this as a charming spot. We used the cafe which was clean and very good value.

This is not the prettiest beach in Cornwall at all, but my grandchildren love it. Close to home. Excellent for water sports and a good little cafe kiosk with ice creams to die for. Ample parking just opposite the pebbly beach. Loos a short walk...More
