    Black Cliff Beach Information

    Black Cliff beach is a sandy beach stretching between Hayle Towans and Mexico Towans. Hayle beach is a large beach backed by dunes and Black Cliff beach gives some protection from the wind by being sheltered by cliffs. The beach gets its name from the dark cliffs that line the back of the beach.

    You often get some large areas of shallow water near the cliffs when the tide is out that provide great safe play for small children.

    Facilities at the beach include a small beach cafe and toilets at the top of steps, and if the steps are too much then Hayle Towans beach has a sloped beach access and can be used to get onto this beach.

    Black Cliff Beach has dog restrictions. Black Cliff beach, dogs not allowed between 8am and 7pm 1st May - 30th October. Be careful that the beaches have various permissions and the boundaries are not easy to locate. Check the signs.

      Better than St ives
      Everyone talks about St. Ives but this is the place to visit. Has everything you want for a day on the beach although the small cafe is a bit pricy.

      Good day on the beach.
      Good bodyboarding, plenty of room or rounders, nice cafe. The speed of tide coming in did catch us out a little as we walked along.
