What a beautiful beach. A long strand at low tide and a wonderful spot from which to watch the surfers. There were some beautiful waves here and the surfers were enjoying themselves right up until dark. And some good food nearby. (Catch)

Great facilities. The Merrymoor pub food is great. This beach is very well placed for cliff top walks to both Bedruthan steps & Watergate Bay.

Stayed at the Scarlet Hotel, overlooking this beach, and it was such a stunning view to wake up to. Beautiful sand, typical huge tides and immense amounts of soft sand. Clean too with good RNLI coverage.

Hi, there's a car park right opposite the beach - they do tend to put the prices up during holiday season mind you. The entrance is right next to Betty's newsagents.
