Beautiful Pristine beach
May 2021 • Family
This dog friendly pristine beach spotlessly clean.Plenty of Carparks where to the wise the Apple Park needs resurfacing so use the lower car park by the holiday park . Again there are no concessions for disabled other than an pay for 1 hour get the next free. Toilets in the car park easy access to the beach

OK for dogs, but not for people.

This beach was covered in smelly seaweed when we visited. There is also a smell from the neighbouring clay works and the (seemingly) polluted river running next to it. Beware of deep sand in this vicinity. There are a few nice walks in the dunes behind the beach.

Only good for dogs

Wide open beach and good for dogs but felt dirty and not pleasant with the factory right there. Lots of parking.

Lovely beach - shame about the state of the car park.
Sep 2020
The beach is large and totally unspoilt. No loos, but I'm told the pub doesn't mind if you have to pop in to use theirs. We were there at the beginning of September, of an evening, and it was almost deserted. The only criticism is the car park which, although very cheap, was a mass of very deep potholes. I feared for my car's suspension!

Safe beach for families & dogs
Sep 2020
Large spacious beach, loads of room to stroll around socially distancing! Good for dog walkers. Good for children, very shallow & safe beach/sea. Lots of car parking space. Lovely duck pond.

Great beach but lacks amenities
Aug 2020 • Family
We spent a lovely day on the beach here in very hot weather. It was not overcrowded and people were respectful of each other. It's a pretty large but beach at the left end (just ignore the industry to the right). The car park was good value but the surface incredibly bumpy. Unfortunately the toilets were shut and there is no cafe.

What a gem
Aug 2020 • Family
We stayed very close to this beach, the kids loved it! It was nice and clean and fairly quiet, I’d say the only small negative is all the dogs on there about 98% were very well behaved but some owners insist on letting their dogs run right over to you - not everyone enjoys dogs jumping all over them !!

Disappointed
Aug 2020 • Family
This was the first time I've been to Cornwall in years. I was so looking forward to going to one of their glorious beaches.. on arrival parked easily. Walked over small sand dune to the beach..
Excited to see blue sea and sandy beach.. i was disappointed to say the least.. sea looked brown, sand was full of sea weed, yes I know you get sea weed at the beach but there was a lot. It was very smelly. The sea also had a lot of sea weed in.
Its just not what I pictured in my head, after looking at all the lovely pictures of this beach online. On the plus the sand was glittery, which made it look pretty when the sun shone.

Was nice enough
Aug 2020 • Family
Plenty of parking via JustPark app, cafe NOT on the beach. Sand dunes were cute for the kids, not the most scenic of beaches in the area so wouldn’t return, far nicer ones close by instead
