The closest beach is Pendower Beach, which is a lovely 25 minute walk away, down country lanes and footpaths.
It is also accessible by car and there is no charge for parking.
Carne Beach joins up with Pendower Beach at low tide which makes for a lovely circular walk along the beach and back via the coastal path
(or vice versa!). In summer there is often an ice cream van by the slipway on Carne Beach and a pop-up tea room in the
National Trust car park. If you feel like a real treat, you could have a cream tea at the Nare Hotel!
Porthcurnick Beach is the next easily accessible beach south along the coast towards Portscatho and St Mawes.
It can be accessed on foot via the coastal path, or by car. The best thing about Porthcurnick Beach is undoubtedly The Hidden Hut,
which has featured on numerous TV celebrity chef programmes.
At low tide it is possible to walk along Porthcurnick Beach to Portscatho Beach and back along the road.
Portloe is a beautiful little fishing village up the coast, and well worth a visit.
The next beach up from Portloe is Portholland Beach where the film 'Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children' was filmed.
Other nearby beaches include the large sandy family beaches at Falmouth and Gorran Haven.
