Beaches in Cornwall

With a coastline stretching for over 250 miles Cornwall has no shortage of fantastic beaches and coves. These range from secluded, barely accessible rocky coves to huge expanses of golden sand on the Atlantic coast. It is little wonder that Cornwall beaches are rated among the best in the UK and even the world. Here are some that are close to us.
