Whitsand Bay Beach offers three miles of stunning beach from Rame Head to Portwrinkle and is considered one of Cornwall’s hidden gems.
Four golden sand beaches backed by sheer cliffs combine to create stunning scenery. Reached by steep paths and steps , at low tide the long stretch of glistening sand provides some great walking or jogging and the constant swell keeps surfers happy riding some huge waves.
Rock pools dotted around the beach reveal fascinating sea life and out to sea the bay is a popular dive site and home to HMS Scylla, an ex-naval frigate sunk in 2004 to form an artificial reef.
When the tide’s in, the beaches are mostly covered but up on the cliffs the award winning View Café is a great spot for a meal and at the bottom of the cliffs at Tregonhawke Beach the Eddystone Café is an ideal place to grab a coffee and just enjoy the rather stunning views.
Access – Can be difficult on steps and uneven paths from parking areas.
