Small beach but close to all amenities, beach changes when tide is out as you have access to other beaches - this is the best time for towan. You take the rough with the smooth as it is a very public beach

A lovely sandy beach, directly in the town. So convenient to base yourself here for the day, or to drop by for an hour or two. Lots of choices near by for food and drink, to suit all budgets. The spectacular house on the rock...More

This could be the only place I’ve seen that has a chargeable disabled toilet. I was totally amazed, fortunately over the road is a Sainsbury’s faith free loos.

Lovely little beach by the harbour we found by accident after taking a wrong turn, up in the town centre. I’ve yet to be disappointed by a Cornish beach and this is another gem on offer

Main town beach with lovely soft sand and clear water. Tide comes in a long way so crowded at high tide. Too many dogs for more than three stars.
