On the south coast of Cornwall can be found this mile long beach which is made up of golden sand and outcrops of rock. The beach is divided into two areas, the eastern and western ends. The eastern end consists of mainly rocks and rock pools. The western end is more sandy and is where the amenities can be found. These consist of café/restaurant, toilets, shops, a camp site and even a pub.
There is a large car park available which means the beach can get very busy during the summer months. There is a life guard service in operation covering the western end of the beach during the summer months. The beach is popular with local surfers all year round but be careful as there can be some strong currents around. Located only 1/2 mile behind the beach can be found a 9 hole golf course which is very popular with locals.
