Hayle Towans Beach

Hayle Towans beach sits alongside Hayle estuary. Good sandy beach although we would recommend moving along the beach away from the estuary for safer swimming, check out the lifeguard swimming flags that normally sit in front of Black Cliff beach.

Whilst the north end of St Ives Bay has good surfing beaches, Hayle Towans is the spot for kitesurfing and canoeing.

Towans means sand dunes.

Facilities include lifeguards in the summer, toilets, pub and cafe.

Hard path slope down to the beach from the RNLI hut makes it easier to access than the steps at Black Cliff beach.

Hayle Towans Beach has dog restrictions.
Hayle Towans beach has seasonal dog restrictions not allowing dogs from 1st July to 31st August between 10 am - 6 pm. Be careful that the beaches have various permissions and the boundaries are not easy to locate, check the signs.

Why not check other beaches nearby as we have 50 beaches at Penwith Peninsula, 216 beaches in Cornwall, or check our list of Cornwall Dog Friendly Beaches.
