Long Sands Tregantle Cliff Beach (Cornwall)

  • Information

    Long Sands or Tregantle Cliff beach is a section in the long stretch of sand and rocks of Whitsand Bay. When the tide is out you have a very large beach but at high tide then only a small area of sand.

    The beach sits within a “Danger Area” below Tregantle Fort and when the red flags are flying this signifies that they’re using the firing ranges above the cliffs and the beach is closed to the public.

    Lifeguards are at the beach daily during July, August, September and then during May and June weekends and bank holidays. The currents can be strong and it is advised only to swim when the lifeguards are on patrol.

    You have a small car park and lay-by by the fort or people park on the road opposite. You then have a short walk through the MoD property down to the beach. No facilities at the beach although nearby Freathy beach has a cafe.

    Long Sands Tregantle Cliff Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year. Long Sands Tregantle Cliff Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
