Cornwall’s tropical gems

Beaches to match the Caribbean

“As in previous years, Cornwall is the county that has the cleanest beaches”

The Telegraph 23rd May 2017.

 

If you love the beach, then Cornwall is definitely the county for you. Displayed majestically along Cornwall’s coastline are over 400 little pockets of delight that range in size from long golden sands and tropical looking seas to hidden away smuggling coves. In Cornwall, there’s a beach or two for every day of the year!

When you visit the beach, it’s good to know the sand is well kept and the sea is clean. Cornwall has again been recognised as having 8 fantastic blue flag beaches and a further 6 have gained a prestigious Seaside Award. To top that, Lusty Glaze has just been nominated as The Sunday Times ‘best beach in the UK’.

The Independent however, disagrees, naming Bossiney Cove between Boscastle and Tintagel along with the ever popular Polzeath and Summerleaze beaches as their top picks. Trip Advisor users favour the surf haven of Fistral (#no2), and the wide golden sands of Porthminster (#no.6) and Perranporth (#no9).

As for ‘secret beaches,’ The Guardian named pretty Portheras Cove at Morvah, near Land’s End as one of the best in the UK whereas The Express prefer The Strangles, near Crackington Haven along with picturesque Kynance Cove.
