Follow the road in to the car park. £6 for up to 24 hours, or around £2 for 2 hours or £4 for 4 hours. The Beach Cafe is well signed and my wife assures the toilets are nice and clean! We arrived around 10:30 an empty car park and a near empty beach. I took photos of the path from the car park to the beach to show that is not that bad. There's a slightly longer path with steps toward the beach, or the more direct route down the sandy path. The sand is more of a fine shell type sand that moves around quite a lot, so things can get buried easily, like small toys, tent pegs, etc. Short tent pegs don't really hold very well so if you have a beach tent, use longer pegs or weigh it down with rocks and bags. The beach is a couple of hundred metres long and almost as wide. When you get to the waters edge or slopes quite a bit to the sea. This morning the waves at high tide were quite brutal - not ideal for small children. A nice clean beach, not over run and not too crowded. As I write this, it is midday and there are only around 150 - 200 people in the beach.
Hands down, one of Cornwall’s finest beaches. Beautiful golden sands with hidden coves to explore at low tide. Be sure to stop by the Minack theatre if you’re in the area
The best beach in the UK! Crystal clear water, not particularly cold at all. The beach itself has lovely sand with plenty of space. There are two big car parking sites just a short walk away. Coastal walks from the beach are also an option, with some stunning views of the beach and its surroundings. Fully recommend a visit!
Beautiful picturesque beach. Lovely blue and turquoise water. You could easily forget that you are in England.... It is a long walk to the beach from the car park and for some reason the sand here DOES NOT want to come off
Small idyllic beach, golden sand, azure sea. The sun was shining but it was really windy when we went and the sea spray and sand were being blasted in to our faces and the waves were crashing on to the beach, it was just breath taking. Please don't tell anyone else about it, nothing to see here. Just go to the telegraph museum instead, that was much more interesting (actually, the telegraph museum was fascinating)
