Owner description: A favorite place for a family outing, this lovely stretch of beach overlooks Godrevy Lighthouse in the distance.

This beach is quiet, it has really lovely sand and the most wonderful cafe which is really a high quality restaurant these days.

The sea itself is really great for bathing, never too stirred up, and clean.

This year (2011) however was a year when a wet suit was needed in order to stay in the water for more than 10 minutes!!

A fantastic beach. Very safe and the sand was soft under your feet. Does it have a fault? If it does, I couldn't find it.

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.

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.
