Kingsand & Cawsand Beaches

Sailing, rockpools and a little ferry to Plymouth

Kingsand beach is pebbly with a mix of sand and shingle, sand mainly at low tide. Safe bathing. Great rockpools for the kids to explore and five pubs for the parents to explore (not necessarily recommended while the kids are rockpooling, though). The views are pretty stunning and you can watch the ships come up Plymouth Sound. Relaxing atmosphere and dogs are allowed all year.

Cawsand is much sandier and there’s a slipway to the beach, making it a popular spot for sailing. During the Summer, you can also grab the Cawsand Ferry to Plymouth Barbican, every hour and a half. A short walk out of the village towards Fort Picklecombe will take you to a good swimming beach known locally as Sandways.

NB: Dogs allowed on Cawsand Beach, winter only.
