Towan Beach - The Roseland
Towan Beach on The Roseland Peninsula is a quiet, south-east facing sand and shingle bay near St Mawes and is just one of the many serene, secluded beaches along the beautiful unspoilt headland.
Within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this haven at the tip of St Gerrans Bay is dog-friendly year-round, its vast shoreline backed by low grass-covered cliff never getting too crowded, even at the height of summer.
Many people visit Towan via the South West Coast Path whilst on the way to the historic St Anthony’s Head Lighthouse at the end of the peninsula. The lighthouse was built by Trinity House in 1835 to guide vessels safely into Falmouth Harbour past the treacherous Manacles reef, but famously was also featured in the children’s TV series Fraggle Rock.
