Harlyn is known for being a great family beach. Located in the lee of Trevose head and with a northerly aspect it is slightly more sheltered than some of its west facing neighbours.

The wide crescent of yellow sand provides plenty of space and the waters here are generally safe for swimming during summer months, when there is lifeguard cover. There's lots to keep kids occupied too with rock pools, sand dunes and a small stream.

This is by far our favourite beach , it’s beautiful as are the other beaches on this part of the Cornish coast
Also dog friendly.

You may want to keep dogs on a lead, ours was attacked by a lose dog. Also the roads are narrow which people bomb down in their overpriced, ostentatious Land/Range Rovers, inconsiderate of human life. We were nearly killed by some idiot who looked like Richard Branson (club 33) who just smiled at us. If you want some stress, get yourself down!
