The Beach Guide

Hayle Towans Beach

This expanse of beach is what makes up most of Hayle's '3 miles of golden sand'. At low tide all the Hayle beaches join up to provide an impressive stretch of sand popular with sand yachts and kite buggies.

Despite being directly in front of a substantial caravan the beach is so vast that it very rarely gets crowded.

There is a car park in the caravan/campsite behind. There usually isn't a problem parking here but I have heard of people being turned away at the gate in summer.
