What a contrast. We walked from Cadgwith over the cliff walk and the first impressions are good, plenty of car parking, nice cafe with limited food but lots of seating, good beaches, one dog free for half the year. Well it's partly true. The beach adjacent to the car park is designated dog free with a £100 minimum fine and... More

This is one of Cornwall's many hidden gems. It's not ever so easy to find or get to, although there is a road from Kuggar that is surfaced all the way, so it's not the most difficult either. It looks good for children, with sand and rockpools etc. Also, there are two cafes. We went to the one right on... More

Have been going to this beach since I was a baby and it is absolutely stunning! Great for families, couples,friends etc. Amazing sandy beach with gorgeous sea. Popular in the summer but have made many friendships on this beach which I still see now! Would highly recommend!

Off the beaten track, and down the narrowest lane but all worth the effort. I parked at the first small car park I came too and walk 5 minutes to the beach. There are 2 large beaches and the views are stunning!

There's a cafe there as well, though didn't use it looked pretty reasonable priced, only thing I would say is park on the hill. There is... More
