About us

Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide Recommended 2015 excellent water quality

The beach's of Whitsand Bay offer three miles of stunning sand from Rame Head to Portwrinkle and are considered one of Cornwall’s hidden gems. Reached by steep paths and steps that wind down between the verdant vegitation, these beaches are never crowded. At low tide the long stretches of glistening sand provides great walking or jogging opportunities, whilst the constant swell keeps surfers happy riding some huge waves.

Rock pools dotted along the beach reveal fascinating marine life, and out to sea the bay is a popular dive site, home to HMS Scylla, an ex-naval frigate sunk in 2004 to form an artificial reef.

Lifeguards are on station at various points along the beach between May and September, but please be careful if swimming as there are dangerous currents in the area at times.

Access - Can be difficult on steps and uneven paths from parking areas.
