Hit a Cornish Beach

Cornwall has 300 or something amazing beaches and what a selection – from super sandy soft golden sands to shingle and rocky beaches. A super wide selection some dog-friendly, family friendly, and some that simply span miles and miles we love them all! If you’re visiting Cornwall – even in the winter, It’s very easy to see why we think they are some of the best beaches in the world!


Easy to access Beaches

Some beaches may not be suitable for all to access here in Cornwall – the sand and rock slopes sometimes restrict certain users – IF you click HERE you can find a great list of EASY Accessible Beaches for all to enjoy – many of which have generally slopping walkways that allow disabled parking. Gaining access for somebody in a wheelchair can be tricky – Click HERE for Beaches that are part of the Beach Sandchair scheme – these chairs have large wheels and can access the beach so much more effectively than a normal wheelchair!

Dog-Friendly Beaches

The Garrack Hotel prides itself on the Dog-friendly guest scheme we have – we love Dogs here at the Garrack Hotel, and we also love them to enjoy the beach – If you’re looking for beaches that ban dogs you can go on the Cornwall Council Website and they can give you a great list of  beaches to be mindful of:

Heading out to the Beach – Safety first!

Every year visitors lose their life in Cornwall due to its rough and rugged coastline – the RNLI saves lives every year, but this action can and could be prevented if you think safety first, and if your going into the water really do think safety first and remember the tide comes in and goes out twice a day – well over two thirds of people in the whole of the UK go to the beach for many different reasons the RNLI are set up to patrol over 200 beaches now in and around the UK – thats a lot of beach management – give them a helping hand and think sensibility before undertaking any water activity!

Heres a few but highly useful tips

Always try to swim at a lifeguarded beach, and swim between the red and yellow flags that you will see – try to not swim alone, get to know your beach safety flags there are only a few to learn! If you do ever get into trouble, stick your hand in the air, and shout for help:

If you can’t see a lifeguard on duty then call 999 or 112 and ask for the Cornish coast guard – For more info go to RESPECT THE WATER
