Cawsand beach, Cornwall

A pleasant sand and shingle beach with all the usual facilities at the back of the beach, Cawsand is situated on the eastern side of the Rame Peninsula in South East Cornwall.

Cawsand can reached by walking along the coast path, by road or by our preferred option by ferry from Plymouth.

East facing the beach is bounded by Pemberknowse Point in the north and Conger Point in the south. It is a former fishing village although tourism now makes up the lion's share of the income to the village. The back of the beach is protected by high walls and is often used by boat owners as a temporary storage area.

There is a large car park located about 150 yards from the beach and access to the beach is easy.

Facilities at Cawsand include toilets, shops and cafés.

Please note that a 'Seasonal Dog Ban' is in operation on Cawsand Beach meaning that dogs are not permitted on the beach from Easter Day to October 1st.

The whole Rame area is disregarded by many tourists as they speed down to the better known resorts of Newquay and St. Ives, but Cawsand and its near neighbour Kingsand still have plenty to offer... without the crowds!
