Porthkidney Beach

Porthkidney Sands
Hayle Rivermouth

Large sandy beach in front of the sand dunes of Lelant. Reasonably sheltered at the western end and usually quiet. At low tide Carbis Bay Beach is accessible by walking around the point.
The river is not suitable for swimming and the currents at this end of the beach can be dangerous.
