A wide, sandy beach in Par, just outside St Austell. The-south facing beach is backed by low sand dunes through which there are many paths as well as a small lake.
One of Cornwall's best family beaches. The idyllic sandy cove is perfect for water-sports or exploring rock pools. Plus features one of the best beach restaurants & waterside pub.
