Just a short walk from the village centre, this is definitely the best beach in St Mawes.

Perhaps not the sandiest of beaches, it’s still a decent one. The best bit is it isn’t too crowded. If you can brave the cold water, the sea is great to swim in as well with a small platform you can go over to and dive off. Make sure you keep an eye out for jelly fish though.

Summers beach is South West facing and is the largest beach in St Mawes. It is mainly pebbly with rock pools to explore at low tide. At the back there is a paved area where you can sit at beach level if you are uncomfortable on the pebbles. It has a scenic outlook and it is generally fairly tranquil. There are steps own to the beach.

The beaches in St Mawes are not great. summers beach is the best of the bunch. There are some stone steps towards the back which is the best place to sit there are rock pool at low tide and you can watch the boat sail by up the estury. Quite enjoyable for a couple of hours There are no toilets or food outlets nearby, these are found a 10 mniute walk away in the resort centre.

Summers beach is super. Beach gradient is shallow. We launched our own kayak of it and the beach provides opportunity to visit Place Manor and paddle up Percuil River . The beach is great for families as it has a pontoon - floating that the kids swim too - and then jump off .its quite close to St Mawes walking distance to get ice cream!

Summers beach is best in St Mawes but that is not saying much. You would not visit St Mawes purely for a beach hoiliday. It is very pebbly and uncomfortable and there are no facilities here.probably OK for the children as it was not very peaceful. Nice place to watch the sailing boats.

While St Mawes is not really a beach destination, it does have a small well maintained beach with great views and not many people.

An added bonus is easy access to fine dining on the terrace in Idle Rocks and Tresanton hotels.

One of two beaches in Sy Mawes. Yet another delightful Cornish Beach. A nice gardens area is immediately behind the beach and the beach looks towards the beautiful harbour.

St Mawes does not have miles of golden sand it's not that type of place, instead it has small "rugged" beaches hugging the shoreline with the harbour at the centre.

This beach is nice with good rock pools and good access via stone steps at the further end.

We were actually between the two beaches just sitting enjoying the lovely views of the boats and estuary.

St Mawes is not really a beach sort of a place but it is worth seeking out as it is picturesque.

As tide went out children were playing in the water and it is very clear.
