Information


At Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps Beach the coast is steep cliffs and rock scattered sandy beaches. Starting at Carnewas Point the beach winds around the craggy rocks for approximately 1 mile. Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps has spectacular coastal erosion that has worn back the cliff face leaving huge outcrops of volcanic rock scattered along the length of the beach. These towering rocks are surrounded by water at high tide, but at low tide the beach is acccessible and you can walk between them.

Access to the beach is via a steep staircase and the descent (and the climb back up) is steep and the steps are often wet and slippery. It is unsafe to bathe in the sea at any time and more a location for walkers rather than beach goers.

The gate providing access to the steps is locked between November and February.

Toilets (not always available), shop, information centre, tea room, and parking.

Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year. Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
