Trebarwith Strand Beach
Sitting at the bottom of a deep valley, Trebarwith Strand beach enjoys many attractive views along the Heritage Coastline towards Gull Rock. Rocks must be negotiated before you reach the sands of the beach, which becomes completely covered at high tide. Please ensure you are aware of the tide movement when visiting. Popular with families and well known for it’s surf.
Lifeguards will be patrolling this beach from May 21st until September 25th. Please note: The lifeguard information was accurate at the time of entry. You are advised to always check beach conditions before your visit and always heed the lifeguard’s advice whilst on the beach.
Remember FLAGS when at the beach:
Find the red and yellow flags and swim between them
Look at the safety signs
Ask a lifeguard for advice
Get a friend to swim with you
Stick your hand in the air and shout for help if in difficulty
Rights and lefts – lots of cross waves make it a peaky wave to surf, with predominately closeout, fast and barrelling waves. Peak on the left of the beach, pub side at mid-ish tide. Suitable for: Intermediate and experienced surfers only. Dangers: Access problems at mid-tide through the rocky gully. Lots of rocks at the northern end of the beach. Tides: Surfable at low to mid-tide. Wind: E/SE offshore
