Lovely quiet beach. No shade or facilities. Take your shoes for swimming as quite stoney on the shoreline. Our dog loved this beach but needed the beach tent for shade. Not too bad to get down to but a steep climb back up.

Lovely wide beach with lots of sand and interesting rocky bits. It's deserted, perhaps because you can only get to it from the coast path or from a small NT car park that's up a small lane.

A beautiful beach just along the South West Coastal Path from the sleepy fishing village of Gorran Haven. It is a long, wide beach with rock pools and coarse sand. We visited it when it was one of those days that started off looking promising...More
