Parking is right on the beach, £1.50 aprox per day. Disabled Access. Seasonal Dog Ban. Beach cafe and shop selling snacks, drinks, ice creams, buckets and spades etc. Toilets. Quality restaurant opposite the beach with great views.
The coast path runs through here and walking towards Falmouth and Swanpool Beach you will come across the memorial to the Home Guard who patrolled the cliffs here on the look out for U-boats and enemy shipping.
