The sheltered position of this beach makes it an ideal spot for families. Close to the mouth of the River Fowey, this beach is a hit with locals and visitors alike throughout the year. As well as being a perfect swimming spot, the beach has the added bonus of having plenty of rock pools to be explored at low tide.

 

An ice cream van can usually be found nearby during the spring and summer months and public toilets are available. A newly opened cafe and beach shop can also be found at the beach. The nearest parking is at Cornwall Council’s Readmoney long stay car park, which is around five to ten minutes walk.

 

If you fancy a break from the beach, just ten minutes walk up and around the cliff will bring you to St Catherine’s Castle. Built by Henry VIII as an artillery fort in the 1530’s to defend Fowey Harbour, entry is free and open during reasonable daylight hours. Perfect to soak up the views of the river and neighbouring Polruan as well as brush up on your local history.
