A picturesque east-facing shingle and sand beach scattered with rock pools and inlets, Cawsand Bay is a favourite for families, walkers, swimmers, and kayakers alike, its calm sheltered waters providing a safe and scenic spot for all activities on the edge of Plymouth Sound
Just a short walk from the beach are the shops and traditional pubs of both the 17th Century fishing villages Cawsand and neighbouring Kingsand. Once in separate counties, the now twinned villages are famed for their ancient rivalry and became notorious for smuggling throughout the 1700s and early 1800s.
Please note: Despite what local signs say, dogs are welcome on this beach except between the 1 July - 31 August when a seasonal dog ban is in place between 10am and 6pm (2022).
