Gwithian Towans Beach

Gwithian Towans is a vast and beautifully rugged sandy beach that forms part of Three Mile Beach within St Ives Bay.

Towans is the Cornish word for ‘sand dunes,' and these golden hills tufted with wild grass, alongside dramatic cliffs are the backdrop to a shore shaped by the Atlantic swell and often swept by a strong sea breeze making it a favourite for surfers and kite surfers for the consistent year-round swell. At low tide the large areas of rock pools are uncovered around Strap Rocks, just waiting to be explored and keen eyes should look out for resident grey seals often spotted off the coastline.
