Beaches

A few of our favourite local beaches.  Not a complete list by any means as there are so many little beaches and coves along our coastline that are equally worthwhile.


Gorran Haven 

A popular wide sandy beach with enough parking for busy days. There is a slipway to the beach.


Hemmick

A pleasant sandy beach, but there are no facilities and parking is poor.


Porthpean

A popular sandy beach that can get very busy during the summer holiday period. There is a slipway for dinghies.


Porthluney/Caerhays

A sheltered sandy beach close to Caerhays Castle & Gardens. Facilities are close to the beach and there is easy access to the beach.


Vault Beach

A wide shingle and sand beach but with no facilities. Parking is some distance away, but the views are stunning as you head along the coast path to get there. The first part is a large quiet family beach. Further along there is an equally large unofficial nudist area. The coast path can be walked to Dodman Point.
