Polstreath Beach (aka Little Polstreath Beach)

Polstreath beach is fine sand and split in two by a stack, the smaller beach is known as Little Polstreath.

The beach offers good swimming and a quieter alternative to Mevagissey around the corner.

Hard to get to for the elderly and those with young children as the climb back up from the beach is quite steep.

No facilities, nearest are in Mevagissey.
