Things to see and do around Carne and Pendower

Carne beach

Carne and Pendower beaches open out to one long glorious stretch of sand at low tide.

Once you discover these beaches, you'll want to come back again and again. There is parking at both ends and they are on the South West Coast path, not far from Veryan village. Popular all year round, for paddling, rock-pooling, butterfly spotting and picnicking when it's warm and for walking and bird watching anytime.

There is no over-night camping at Carne or Pendower, but there are camp sites near by or you may want to choose to stay in one of our holiday cottages at Gwendra Wartha or Caragloose.

Close by you can see Nare Head. Discover the years of military history under your feet when you walk around the headland. Lawrence Holmes and his team open up the bunkers a few times each year, so why not book onto one of his tours
