Freathy beach, Cornwall

Freathy Beach lies just below the chalet rich village of Freathy mid-way along the sandy arc of Whitsand Bay in South East Cornwall, between Sharrow Point and Tregonhawke.

The south west facing beach consists of fine golden sand and together with Tregonhawke and Long Sands makes up Whitsand Bay, stretching from Portwrinkle almost to Rame Head - about four and a half miles.

Freathy Beach is best accessed down a couple of quite steep cliff paths or can be visited by walking to Freathy from one of its neighbouring beaches.

Activities at Freathy include surfing and diving out in Whitsand Bay and fishing from the beach. Youngsters can explore the rock pools. The beach has lifeguard cover from early July until the beginning of September, and swimming is not advisable unless lifeguards are present due to offshore rip currents. Safety Equipment is present and dogs are allowed all year round. Parking is available at Tregonhawke and above Sharrow Point.
