Mexico Towans Beach

Mexico Towans Beach forms part of a breath-taking three miles of golden sand that starts from the mouth of the Hayle estuary and reaches out towards the lighthouse at Godrevy Point.

This remote and untamed stretch of beach situated between Hayle and Gwithian, is backed by magnificent sand dunes known as 'towans.’ Mexico Towans beach is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI); nationally important for wildlife, the landscape allows about 300 different plants to occur within the dunes, which are Cornwall’s second largest sand dune ecosystem, spreading for approximately 400 hectares and made up from wind-blown, lime-rich shell sand.
