Whitsand Bay

Accommodation  -  Map  -  Torpoint  -  (back to all beaches)

Whitsand Bay sits between Portwrinkle and Rame Head on the south east Cornish coast.


It's a lovely long sandy beach with a lot of rocks, pools and places to explore. Just finding parking can be tricky, and access requires a rocky walk, but once you are there it's a great beach and easy to find your own little spot somewhere.


Bear in mind that due to the rock formations there is a risk of being cut-off by the tide, so always make yourself aware of the tide times!


Head towards Torpoint on the A374 then take the B3247. Whitsand Bay has very limited parking!
