The gently sloping beach has shallow water and rockpools with plenty of marine life to explore making it a good choice for families with children.
At low water the ship wreck of the Ben Asdale can be seen, while marine activities such as sailing, kayaking, diving and sea safaris are available for the more adventurous. Parking is right by the beach

Lovely small beach, does get busy but for good reason! Family friendly as no big drop off when in the water. Close to lovely Falmouth, good cafe and pub/restaurant as well, what more could you want!!

Great location, facilities, but V busy even mid Oct. Best in dog allowed season.
Stunning and unspoiled. Love it first thing in the morning
