While developers continue to work towards their multi-million pound vision for Carlyon Bay, the beach remains a popular place to spend hot summer days and nights.


The area is actually a grouping of three beaches, Crinnis, Shorthorn and Polgaver, all offering their own unique features, but together creating an impressive stretch of unbroken coastline.


With work still underway to realise the plan for Carlyon Bay, the beach remains open and with plenty of space, the beach provides the perfect place for all ages and interests from sandcastle builders and picnic goers to sun worshipers and swimmers. Walkers can appreciate spectacular views from the South West Coast Path which winds its way around Carlyon Bay’s cliff top.


There is a private, chargeable car park at the top of the hill for beach goers and a seasonal dog ban is in place.
