“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2011

This beach is a must to visit if you go to Cornwall, Lovely sand, clean water and an RNLI lifesaver on this beach means that it's great for a family day out at the beach. There is a cafe, toilets, showers, restaurant and bar on the beach so everyone will be happy! Please visit - you won't be disappointed.

“Good beach, gets a little busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2011

Smaller than the nearby Porthmeor beach, but with good views and good sand. It is always very busy, even at Easter, and for this reason I prefer Porthmeor. Nonetheless a good beach if you don't mind the crowds.
