Pentewan Sands

On the way to Mevagissey from St Austell you may have seen Pentewan Sands holiday park, but did you know that part of Pentewan beach is open to the public? You will need to park in Pentewan itself, and spaces may be limited at times, but access to the beach from here is literally yards away.


Bear in mind that some of the beach may only be accessible to users of the holiday park. There is also a small childrens play area with swings nearby, and facilities can be found in the centre of Pentewan in and around The Square.



Follow the B3253 from St Austell towards Mevagissey. Pentewan is easily found about 4 miles outside St Austell on this road. Take the left turn just after the filling station.
