We visited the traditional sea side beach of Praa Sands this sunday. Praa sands is the sort of place where children are busy making sandcastles above the tide line and surfers seek out the best waves on the horizon.
Explore the idyllic beaches and coves of a secret Cornwall just a comfortable stones throw away from the bustle of the tourism trail and yet a world apart.
As the winter days stretch out before us I’ve found myself looking fondly back to the memories of our autumn beach adventures.
Explore some of the pretty coves and villages on The Lizard and seek out the intriguingly named Gunwalloe Cove and Dollar Cove. Separated by the romantically named “The Church of Storms” Before travelling on to the popular beach of Poldhu fanious for the first radio signal
Perranuthnoe beach is a tempting tidal expanse of soft sands flanked by warm tamarisk framed terracotta cliffs. Perranuthnoe Beach is justifiably popular with locals, visitor and passing walkers all the year around.
I must say my first sight of Godrevy beach was simply breathtaking, with pale silky soft sands stretching away as far as the eye could see and a hint of sea vapour hanging in the air
Porth Chapel beach is idyllically set below tall granite cliffs, with sands of broken shells dipping to the sea – it’s just a short walk from St Levan, tucked between Porthcurno and Porthgwarra and quite near to Land’s End. It is just a perfect spot for an afternoon away form the tourist’s hot spots of Cornwall for a few hours of peace and near solitude.
