A small stretch of sand tucked underneath Pendennis point in Falmouth on the south coast of Cornwall. Difficult to find and hard to get to, this one is solely reserved for the adventurers out there. Great place to sit and watch the falmouth working boats sail and race around the Carrick Roads. Voews stretch out across the mouth of the River Fal and its infamous Black Rock.
Park on Pendennis Point and take the footpath around the point along the river.
