This is a great sandy beach with cafe and toilets. The sea is great for swimming in although does get deep quickly when the tides in. Lots of rocks at one end for exploring and not too busy

This is a fantastic beach which is accessed either by 82 steps or a steep road from the car park or coastal path between Charlestown and Par. The beach is not the finest of sands and can feel coarse underfoot but it is never far...More

It was a rather windy day so didn't spend too long on the beach. But what a treat. Lovely soft sand. No litter or dog poo. Will definitely come again when a tad warmer.

We found this by accident and on a April weekday we had it pretty much to ourselves. 73 steps (I think) to get to the beach - and then back - but worth it. Love the huge rock on the beach.

Yesterday was so warm and sunny that we was able to sit outside and enjoy a rather nice glass of vine together with an excellent lunch. The crab sandwich was delicious. My husband went for the bubble and squeak which he equally enjoyed. The atmosphere...More
