Guide to Cornwall's beaches

Crantock Beach

Crantock Beach

Crantock beach forms part of the expanse of sand between Pentire and West Pentire headlands. At the southern end of the beach are high cliffs providing some shelter from the wind. To the north is the mouth of the River Gannel, very much diminshed from it's heyday when it was a navigable port.

Hardly outside of Newquay it can be a different world here, handy for avoiding the summer crowds
