Popular with dog walkers so not always great for a quiet spot but free parking during the off-season and easy access down to the sand. Good for surfing as well as always seems to be some surfers here too.

There is a Pay Car Park adjacent to the beach. There is plenty of room within Porthluney Cove and rocks to explore. Opposite the Car Park is Caerhayes Castle Gardens which are worth visiting.

Absolutely stunning beach whatever the time of year. The dogs loved it. We loved it. Although on the coastal footpath quite deserted considering it's June. Small car park fee but worth every penny. Highly recommend.

Lovely clean beach with lots of space for traditional family seaside visits. Beach cafe is brilliant - especially on an evening - hog roast, live music, open fires - what's not to love?!
