Just returned from a week in Cadgwith. Returned to Kennack Sands, after 15 years, visited twice during this stay. Weather was lovely. Great stretch of sand, with rocks to climb. There's a carpark; two cafe's, both serving good food & toilets. Great for families.

Two beautiful beaches with loads of character. There’s two great cafes and a good sized car park. The road down is pretty narrow but well well worth it. It is protected by lifeguards as well

Walked down to the beach - cars every where not much room for pedestrians. Busy little place sea weed follwing the recent storms.

No dogs, unless you go on the east beach which is not that good. Weather was good and the sea flat, wouldn't go back in a hurry. However the walk from Cadgewith is pretty impressive
