Stunning, such a beautiful unspoilt area. We went late and watched the sun go down, it was amazing. This beach is a well kept secret. We were lucky to find it. Well worth searching for.

Arguably a better beach than Carbis Bay, this is 3 miles of clean sand stretching from Hayle Harbour towards Godrevy Lighthouse. There's plenty of room to bring the family and picnic, so it never feels crowded although other people use the beach. The beach also...More

Had a lovely dog walk on this beach yesterday until the hale started! It is dog friendly out of season and is long enough that our labrador was pretty tired by the end of it!

I can't see why not! Near Godrevy head the National Trust may ban it. The beach is very tidal and if you are responsible I can see no reason why not!
