Beach cleans in Cornwall
A huge amount of litter gets washed up on the beaches in Cornwall. It's a true team effort keeping them clean and we're very grateful to all that help. We need your help keeping beaches clean from marine litter, so they're safe for nature and can stay beautiful places to be enjoyed by the whole family.
We can all play our part by taking all our own litter home when we visit the beach.
Joining a beach clean
These beach cleans all take place regularly: please check the property pages before attending any scheduled beach cleans to make sure they're going ahead as planned.
