Family-Friendly Beaches details...

Cornwall is known for its multitude of beaches, and here are some suggestions for the best family-friendly ones.

Gyllyngvase is a short walk from Falmouth town centre. There is flat access so it’s great for pushchairs, a beach café and fun beach facilities in summer.

Perranporth is a huge, sandy beach with lovely rock pools and lots of amenities nearby.

Porthminster beach in St Ives has white sand, blue water and a tropical feel. There’s an award-winning beach café and sheltered waters.

Praa Sands has a long beach of powdery soft sand, shops offering board and equipment hire and vendors selling delicious ice creams.

Summerleaze Beach in Bude has a wonderful sea pool which is great for little swimmers. There are also pretty beach huts that can be booked.

As this is just a very small selection of Cornish beaches, please visit the website below.
