The Beach Guide

Treyarnon Bay

A short walk from Constantine sits Treyarnon Bay, a clean and sandy north west facing beach backed by sand dunes and surrounded by low cliffs. To the north is Treyarnon Point and the south, Trethias Island, both of which provide some shelter. It is one of the most popular beaches in the area, especially with families because the expanse of soft sands and low waters. Indeed , it was recommended in the Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide in 2014 as one of the best family beaches in the Padstow area.
There are lots of sand and rock pools stretching round one side of the beach which are ideal for children to explore. These rockpools are teeming with life such as shrimps, crabs and small fish. There is even a natural "swimming pool" within the rocks to the north of the beach.
