Situated just a 10/15 minute walk from the main shopping streets of Falmouth and facing out to the beautiful point of Pendennis you will find Castle Beach.
It may not be the best beach for swimming (at low tide) due to it’s rocky layout but there is plenty of fun to be had at castle beach searching in it’s numerous rock pools for sea creatures.
It has a a small strip of golden sand which at high tide normally disappears so it is best to check tide times before setting off.
If you do happen to go along at high tide and there is no beach present why not grab a snorkel and mask and explore the sheltered waters.
Above the beach there is a small cafe with outside seating where Ice creams and snacks are available, the cafe also hires deckchairs and sells items like buckets and spades which are a must for the little explorers.
There are a number of local attractions within walking distance of Castle Beach such as: Pendennis Castle, Ships and Castles Liesure Centre, Princess Pavilion & Gllyngdune Gardens, National Maritime Museum and of course the vast array of shops within the centre of Falmouth.
