Nearest Beaches Cornwall

Planning a trip to Cornwall and looking for the nearest beaches. Cornwall has over 200 beaches split over two beautiful coastlines. On the northern and west Atlantic shore it is exposed and wild with sheer cliffs and beaches of fine gold sand to be found at the likes of Watergate Bay, Perranporth, St Ives and Bude. On the English Channel south Cornwall coast the white, sandy beaches are more sheltered like at Falmouth. This coastline is known as the Cornish Riviera as it’s more temperate with fine fishing villages.
