Flushing Beach is a nice and quiet beach which faces and gives, terrific views of the town and Harbour of Falmouth.
The tide comes up quite far when it is high but due to the beach not being hugely populated if you are planning on spending a day here you should be fine.
The beach is separated by a quay which can be a spacial spot for fishing. Bathing is generally safe here although care should be taken as seas are unpredictable and there is no lifeguard presence here.
The waters here are also good for a range of watersports with kayaking being a favourite, once you have seen the views you will understand why.
Behind the beach there is a coastal walk which will take you along to the village of mylor, again this walk boasts some terrific views out onto the river fal (which is an area of outstanding natural beauty)
There is a passenger ferry from flushing that can take you across to Falmouth and a number of other ferries from here which explore not only the River Fal but the beautiful Helford river. If you don’t have your sea legs with you then why not stop off at Falmouth and try some tasty treats from one of many fine restaurants/cafes or peruse the shop lined streets of the main town, both make for a great day out.
Toilets: No there are no toilets here, the closest toilets are in Flushing village which is a 5-10 minute walk.

Safety: Lifeguards are not in operation on this beach.
Dogs: Dogs are allowed on this beach all year round.
Parking: There is a limited amount of on road parking very near to the beach which is free, so it is best to get here early.
Access: There is level access to this beach but it may be a little bumpy.
