Whitsand Bay

Book Tickets Online


Whitsand Bay is a true Cornish gem but can be tricky to access.

Once you have climbed down the steep path, you will be rewarded with miles of sandy beach that join up with the neighbouring coves on the low tide to stretch across 4 miles.

The currents are very strong here and there is seasonal lifeguard cover but caution is advised before swimming or surfing.

The easiest access down to the beach is from the car park near Tregantle Fort that leads to Long Sands Beach.  The second car park leads down to Freathy and Tregonhawke Beach.
