Kennack Sands Beach, The Lizard

Kennack Sands Beach, The Lizard

Set next to the village of Kuggar, Kennack Sands is in fact two beaches, split by a hill and a huddle of rocks called the Caerverracks. The western beach is a great spot for families whilst the eastern beach is a designated nature reserve so be careful. Much-loved by surfers and with shipwrecks galore (some of which can be seen at low tide), this is a fascinating beach and well worth a visit.

This is a fantastic beach for families who like different things; plenty of rock pools for nature-lovers to explore, excellent waves for surfers (waves of 4 to 5 feet are a regular occurrence) and safe swimming as well as lots of sand for castle making, you should find plenty to do. At low tide, you might even spot the odd vessel or two, unlucky enough to be shipwrecked.

If you’re hungry, there’s The Beach Hut which serves a great range of food, leaning towards sea food, of course. Additionally, there is a car park and toilets too. 

Dogs are welcome on the beach except between Easter Sunday and the 30th September when the seasonal dog ban is in place.
