Tregonhawke beach, Cornwall

Tregonhawke Beach runs east from the Rame View Cafe near Freathy to the western flank of Rame Head at Captain Blake’s Point near Polhawn Cove in the far southeast of Cornwall. At low water, the south west facing beach consists of a mile and a half of golden sand and rocks. The beach lies directly below the Whitsand Bay Battery and Military Road and the area southeast of Ninney Rock is more correctly known as Wiggle Beach.

There is RNLI Lifeguard cover from early May to the end of September.

It is advisable only to swim from this beach if the Lifeguards are on duty due to strong rip currents.

There can be quite good surfing under the right conditions but it is not really a snorkelling beach. Divers are common out in Whitsand Bay however.

There is a cafe at Tregonhawke and a restaurant on the coast road at

Wiggle. The nearest toilets are in Millbrook, about a mile and a half away along with pubs and shops.

Dogs are permitted all year round at Tregonhawke.
