Low Tide Beach Walks
Shorter days and a cooler temperature may make you feel less enthusiastic about getting outside, but Autumn has not disappointed. Clear, sunny days, massively low tides and empty beaches have combined to make this the perfect time for exploration and long, beach walks.
Here are our three top tips for magical walks across enormous beaches - with the added bonus of great places to eat after your fun.
- Whitsand Bay: You will find this beach between Rame Head and Portwrinkle on Cornwall's south coast. At low tide a series of coves join up to create over 4 miles of wide open sand plus many caves and rock pools to explore. After your fun have lunch or lashings of hot chocolate in the Cliff Top Cafe in the car park.
- Sennen - Gwenver: At low tide, two of the best beaches in Cornwall magically become one, revealing miles of white sand on which you can play, or just stand and marvel at the surfers. Enjoy great food and fantastic views from The Beach at the back of the Sennen end of the beach.
- Porthtowan - Chapel Porth: At very low tide these two beaches on the North Coast magically become one and the opportunity to walk along the sand between the two becomes possible. The walk back will have to be on the Coast Path - and please be sure of your timings, you do not want to get caught out on this walk. Eat at The Blue Bar in Porthtowan and have coffee/ice creams at the wonderful cafe in Chapel Porth.
