Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Relax and watch the waves at Crantock Beach, a quiet sandy stretch sheltered by dunes on the River Gannel estuary. Forming a part of the expanse between Pentire and West Pentire headlands, the beach also features high cliffs at the southern end, which provide shelter from the wind and calm waters for children and less experienced swimmers. Elsewhere ample waves set the scene for the onsite surf school. Facilities include restrooms, a snack stand, and umbrella rentals.

  • Apart from being a lovely clean sandy beach all ages enjoying themselves plus the dogs. Be careful of any currents in Gannel as tide comes in. Parking spaces can be a problem as extremely busy . People spacing sensibly on beach
  • Fantastic, good family beach, no amusements just a lovely beach.
  • Beautiful clean beach, warm water, soft sand. Really worthwhile place to visit, excellent day out. 5☆
  • A great beach with plenty of space to spread out. Get there early as the carparks fill up quick, good clean toilets and the south west coast nearby to explore.
  • It's just beautiful. Good parking. Bit of a walk to the beach. Army lorry coffee shop run by 3 happy girls . Home made cakes! We had a great time .
