Two great family beaches divided by a hill, the first with cafe/shops for your icecreams, drinks, pasties etc With the added bonus of a life guard station overlooking the beach. If the beach is not your thing then theres plenty of exploring in the hills and cliffs with WW2 pill boxes scattered along the coast. The usual narrow country lanes are used to access the beach which can be quite busy but worth it when you get there.

Lovely family beach, good for body boarding for the kids. Two nice beach cafes and public toilets. Road down to the beach can be busy and is single track most of the way but worth it.

Made a visit to Kennack Sands whilst staying at caravan park above the beach. Lovely beach with rock pools, clean sand, loads of shells for the kids to collect. Dog friendly beach on the far side, short walk to it when the tide is in. Lifeguards watching the bathers.
Tried the cafe on the left as you approach the beach, nice sausage sandwich and filter coffee.
Toilet facilities present.
Will definately return.

Tucled out the way but perfect way to relax. We parked for free half way up the hill. We all went body boarding as the sea is a bit choppy. Little shop on the sea front for all your needs. We will make sure we come back as its not full of tourists like St Ives, Sennon etc.

Kennack Sands is a nice sandy cove, accessed by car (2 car parks, the first is up the hill, 10 mins walk, free; the beach car park is £2.50), but also via the coastal path between Cadgwith and Coverack.
The walk fromCadgwith is very nice,taking around 2 hours, via Portesco. We tried to make this a circular walk, heading up to String Of Pearls headland, then taking paths away from the coast, but the paths were not really well accessed ( via private properties and not marked). I would suggest taking the coast path back also.

The beach was quiet when we were there, but with two large caravan sites under a mile away, you can expect it to be busy in high season.

Typical for beaches on this coast, you also need to time your visit away from high tide, when there's not much beach left.

Finally, the beach side cafe has free wifi, and as you cannot get much signal at all locally, this is quite handy.
