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.

Beach Water Quality


Water samples are taken at regular intervals during the bathing season and at the end of the season the water quality is classified as:
  - Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
  - Good: generally good water quality
  - Sufficient: meets minimum standards
  - Poor: You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
