Praa Sands Beach

Praa Sands Beach

One of the sandiest beaches in Cornwall

Located in famous Mount’s Bay, Praa Sands is rumoured to have the finest sand in Cornwall - fantastic for building sandcastles, burying Dad and romantic walks along the shoreline.

A beautiful place to visit in Cornwall with the family, there are fantastic facilities including a café, toilets and car park which overlooks the beach – a great spot for rainy-day picnics with a view!

Lifeguarded in the summer, Praa Sands is a safe place for kids to play - with crystal blue waters, rock pools and great snorkelling spots.

Surfers will find some of the best waves in Cornwall due to the South Westerly location - great for both beginners and those more experienced. The surf school runs throughout the summer and equipment is available to hire on the beach.

We love...

The accessibility of the beach – the ramp that leads down to it is good for pushchairs and wheelchairs.

Don't miss...

The South West Coast Path which runs either side of the beach, the surrounding cliff tops providing stunning views of Mount’s Bay and the Lizard Peninsula.
