Kennack Sands Beach

Kennack Sands Beach

Kennack Sands, near the village of Kuggar on the Lizard peninsula, is comprised of two beaches with some grassy areas which are divided by the small hill of Carn Kennack and a shore rock feature called Caerverracks. The beach to the east is designated as a nature reserve so please treat it with respect, it can be reached via the footpath that runs along the back of the beach and over Carn Kennack.

Well known amoungst the surfing fraternity, Kennack Sands has a big tidal range due to its shallow angle and regularly throws up 4 to 5 foot waves.  As is usual for beaches on the Lizard Peninsula, Kennack Sands also has its own shipwreck stories and the remains of vessels can be seen from Kennack Sands on especially low tides.

Please note: Dogs are welcome on this beach except between Easter Sunday and 30 September (07:00am - 07:00pm) when a seasonal dog ban is in place.
