Hayle Towans Beach
Hayle Towans Beach is vast expanse of golden sand backed by sand dunes and is the beginning of Hayle’s ‘Three Mile Beach’ within St Ives Bay, joining with neighbouring bays, Gwithian and Godrevy, at low tide.
Towans meaning ‘dunes’ in Cornish, and its these wild, rolling dunes, some of the biggest in Cornwall, the breath-taking views, and the consistent Atlantic swell, that makes it a popular spot year-round, although its vastness ensures it rarely feels overcrowded. The village of Phillack lies half a mile inland behind the dunes and is a Site of Special Scientific Importance, it’s also home to the shockingly named pub, the Bucket of Blood. Legend tells, during its smuggling days, of a murdered customs officer that was found at the bottom of the well.
