Had a lovely time fossicking by the edge of the Gannel channel. A truly beautiful beach - just a shame about the £3 minimum car park stay, which my brother was outraged about and therefore his complaining slightly tainted our visit.

The beach is vast and very picturesque. Ideal for dog walking as all dogs we met were off lead and friendly. We were told (by locals) that it gets very crowded in the summer but great at this time of the year.

Crantock is a beautiful beach and lovely sea. The best part here are the many caves. Most of them are flooded at high tide so you get dead fish. Lots of seashells. But we had a shock. As we went into the cave there was...More
