Housel Bay Beach

Housel Bay is a small sandy cove that disappears at high tide. Visitors need to be careful not to be cut off as the tide comes in!

The bay is reached by a walk along the coast path from Lizard Point (approx 20 minutes) and there is a steep climb down to the beach from the coast path.

Facilities include parking, toilets, shops, cafe all at Lizard Point.
