The most northerly of all the Falmouth beaches, situated alongside Pendennis point. Rocky sections mean that at low tide it is regarded as an excellent beach for rockpooling as well as diving and snorkelling. As you walk way from the Pendennis Point end of the beach, rockpools give way to golden sand as the beach joins Tunnel Beach. The majority of the whole beach can be covered at high tide, so this is something that needs to be remembered. (2 minutes by car - 12 minutes on foot).
