Whitsand Bay

The beaches of Whitsand Bay offer over three miles of stunning golden sand stretching from Rame Head west to Portwrinkle, and are considered one of Cornwall’s hidden gems.

Reached by steep paths and steps that wind down between the verdant vegetation, Whitsand Bay beaches are never crowded. At low tide the long stretch of glistening sand provides great walking, whilst the consistent swell keeps surfers coming year-round.

Rock pools dotted along the beach reveal fascinating marine life, and out to sea the bay is a popular dive site, home to HMS Scylla, an ex-naval frigate sunk in 2004 to form an artificial reef.
