This part of Cornwall is renowned for its spectacular sandy beaches and Cadgwith Cove is the closest beautiful example! Wander through the quintessential fishing village with colourful cottages marking the way and head for the bright fishing boats pulled high on the sand. Grab yourself a spot of lunch at the infamous Cadgwith Cove Inn but beware if you find yourself here on a Friday night you’ll get roped into the sea shanty sing along!
One of Cornwall’s most famous and breathtakingly beautiful beaches is just a stone’s skim from Cadgwith. Stunning white sand to scrunch your toes in, jewel bright turquoise waters ideal for wallowing and incredible rock pools to explore, there’s a reason Kynance is so very popular. It gets busy so set out early and enjoy the whole day in a picture perfect Cornish dream.
Steeped in Cornish history, Coverack is yet another wonderful example of a traditional Cornish fishing village – you’re really spoilt for choice in our part of the world! Take on parts of the coast path to find the ideal vantage spot to drink in the views or while away a few hours exploring the village, relaxing on the beach and grabbing something to eat. Rain or shine Coverack is an easy place to get lost for a while.
Starting at the historic Porthleven Harbour, there are three glorious miles of golden sandy beach to explore. At low tide you can walk along to Loe Bar and the Penrose Estate from the harbour too – keep an eye on those tides though, don’t get stuck!
Complete your day at the beach by grabbing some delicious local food around the pretty harbour, the seafood here is some of the absolute best in Cornwall.
1.5 miles of golden sandy beach is the main draw at Praa Sands – plenty of room for exploring, sandcastle building and dipping those toes in the shallows. Flanked on either side by the South West Coast Path snaking up and over the cliffs, there are stunning viewpoints on either side of this beautiful beach. With plenty of facilities and places to grab a bite to eat, it’s a great option for a family beach day.
