Barely a strip of sand at high tide but a perfect and stunning spot at low tide, Perranuthnoe Beach (also known as Perran Sands) is certainly worth a visit for it’s beautifully sheltered waters and pituresque surround.
This beach is popular with families but never too over crowded and also popular with the surfing community when the waters are choppy. there are lots of rocks to hop about on and pools to expore at low tide
Situated in front of a village of the same name, which itself is a glorious spot to take a look around. There is a gorgeous coastal walk along the cliffs that back this beach (they are not too high) and fantastic views of St Michaels Mount.
The village is home to one of Cornwalls oldest Inns which serves fantastic food and makes a perfect ending to a lovely day on the beach.
Perranuthnoe is only a few miles away from Penzance which has lots of fabulous sights to take in.
