Kingsand & cawsand

Cornish: Porthruw


Kingsand & Cawsand are are situated on the Rame Peninsula near Torpoint. The villages are well known for their smuggling and fishing past and although most of the known smuggling tunnels have now been sealed up, there are still old fish cellars and boat stores to be seen along this part of the coast.


Unlike St Ives, which is notable for its light, artists are drawn to the Rame peninsula by the quality of light, the unique micro-climate and juxtaposition of dense green woodland, dramatic cliffs, local beaches and tranquillity of Kingsand and Cawsand, which have remained unchanged for many years.


Admiral Nelson has been said to have visited the village and dined at The Ship Inn (now closed)!
