Guide to Cornwall's beaches

Old Town Bay

Old Town Bay

A pleasant crescent of sand just far enough off the beaten track to nearly always be quiet. The beach backs onto Old Town, which is more of a hamlet but still provides most of the amenities you'll need.

The beach is overlooked from the west by the pretty little Old Town church with its lovely sub-tropical churchyard.
