If you opt for a beach holiday in Cawsand, you’ll find your own sand and shingle beach to enjoy, and the best part is this pretty little bay often escapes the crowds.
Cawsand Bay is all about colourful wooden boats bobbing on the water, visitors enjoying crab sandwiches in the nearby cafes and children investigating its many rock pools. If you want to enjoy the real Cornwall and you like somewhere a little bit sleepier than the more notorious beaches in the county then this one might be for you.
The beach is sheltered by the woodland that backs it, and as it sits right in a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty its stunning scenery more than makes up for its slightly small size.
There's a seasonal dog ban enforced on Cawsand Beach between Easter and October, but it has convenient amenities close by in the village.You’ll find toilets, shops and cafes within easy walking distance, and there’s a large car park too.
There’s also a slipway at Cawsand Beach, which explains why both Kingsand and Cawsand beaches are popular for boating as well as swimming and resting on the sand. Even if you don't have a boat the sight of them bobbing past always makes for the perfect holiday snap. Access to Cawsand Beach is easy too, so it’s perfect for families..
