Situated just around the corner from Land’s End, the most westerly point in the UK. The long sandy beach faces directly out to the Atlantic and makes for a great place for learning to surf. Dog ban between Easter and 1st October.

St Ives Beach

30 Minute drive
St Ives is a beautiful little town on the North Coast of Cornwall with three sandy beaches all within a short walk of each other. You really can’t go wrong here except watch out for seagulls if you are eating. Dog ban beteen Easter and 1st October.

Carbis Bay

25 Minute drive
Facing northeast and just one mile east of St Ives, the beach rarely has any surf so makes for an ideal spot for families with toddlers as the sea here is perfect for swimming. Served by the St Ives train line and around a mile long, the golden sands bathe in the bright light of West Cornwall.

Porth Kidney Beach

Porthkidney Sands is a north-facing beach at the mouth of the Hayle Estuary that lies just two miles from the picturesque harbour town of St Ives, West Cornwall. Porthkidney is a vast expanse of sands, facing Hayle Towans to the east of the estuary. At low tide the beach can stretch almost a mile out to sea.
