Cawsand Bay Beach (Cornwall)

  • Information

    Cawsand and Kingsand are two small villages within Cawsand Bay.

    They have sand and shingle beaches sheltered by Rame Head Peninsula offering views over Plymouth Sound. There are also rock pools to explore and slipways for easy access to the sea.

    The villages have a history with much involvement in smuggling and fishing. Remains of old pilchard cellars from the late 16th century can be seen on the shoreline just beyond Kingsand. These ‘Pilchard Palaces’ were for the storing and processing of this most prized fish.

    Facilities at the beach include slipways, toilets and shops.
