Two small beaches at the heart of the charming fishing village of Cadgwith on the eastern side of the Lizard Peninsula - Cornwall’s most southernly point.
The east-facing shingle bays either side of a rocky promontory called the Todden are a great place to watch the local fishing boats and wander amongst ink-well lobster pots. It's a place that time seems to have forgotten, the archetypal Cornish village nestled in the valley, with only narrow winding lanes to access its cluster of quintessential thatched cottages and the pub.
Dogs are banned from the beach in July and August between the hours of 10am and 6pm. (2023)
A short walk to the south of the village on the South West Coast Path brings you to The Devil’s Frying Pan, a rock arch and hole formed from a collapsed cave in the 1800s.
