Beaches in Cornwall

There are miles of natural beautiful coastline and beaches in Cornwall to explore which we can look after thanks to your support. It's always best to check the property home page before you set out for your local walk, for up to date opening details and to see if you need to book.

Lansallos beach


A long stretch of unspoilt coast near Fowey, with a woodland walk from the car park and a play trail all the way down to the beach. Ideal for a walk and picnic on the beach.

Looking down to Sharrow beach at Whitsand

Sharrow beach at Whitsand Bay 

Sharrow beach is part of the miles of golden sand at Whitsand Bay on the Rame Peninsula. Once you have discovered the area you'll have lots of things to keep you busy. The coast path leads you over the cliff tops with great views and places to stop and stare and if you fancy a beach day, then clamber down the footpaths to Sharrow Beach.

Sandymouth beach at low tide


At the most eastern tip of North Cornwall can be found the wide open spaces of Sandymouth. With great surf but also with a Trust car park, seasonal café, toilets and lifeguard you will be well catered for.

Dog-friendly beaches in Cornwall

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.
