Beach Question

Hi we will be arriving at Falmouth Harbour for one day on our cruise. We would like to spend the day at the beach where there are facilities. We want to rent beach chairs & an umbrella and have lunch.

Suggestions?

Pigeon Beach is a very nice beach. Sandy bottom and calm waters. When I was there 3 weeks ago, there were not any beach chair or umbrella rentals. There are many permanent shade structures which are available on a first come basis. This beach is popular with the cruise ships, as when we were leaving several taxis and mini vans were bring people to the beach. Prior to the cruise ship arrival, we had the place to ourselves.

Blackcuda1 thanks for the update on Pigeon Beach regarding no chair/unbrella rentals, that is something that we want/need.

Anyone else with some options - our ship arrives at Falmouth Harbour we would like something fairly close- don't think there will be any other ships in port that day. We want a nice beach with chairs & umbrellas and facilities with a restaurant.

Thanks for any help.

Reply #1 Catherines Cafe Plage will have all you need.It only opened 2 weeks ago. Great restaurant just nestled back from the beach.

The alternative would be Galleon Beach, but Catherine's elevates Pigeon into another league IMO.
