Gwithian Towans Beach
At low tide, there is a vast amount of sand & plenty of room. Large areas of rock pools, which are great for kids to explore, some caves too. Access to the beach is along a path, through the sand dunes, from the car park.
RNLI Professional lifeguard cover from May to September, 10 am – 6 pm.
Provides consistent, quality waves suitable for all levels. It conveniently gets gradually bigger the further towards Godrevy you go – so you can find a wave to suit your ability. Godrevy and Gwithian Towans Beach are, to all intents and purposes, opposite ends of the same beach, so much of what is said there applies equally here.
On a good day expect long walling lefts and rights with the possibility of a few barrels thrown in at low tide. Optimum conditions are medium-sized north coast swell and southerly round to easterly winds (south-east is directly offshore)
- Refreshments – cafe and beach shop by the main car park, plus another couple of places set back in the dunes.
- Seasonal dog ban from Easter to October
- Surf rescue equipment
- Parking – plenty between the road and the beach.
