Beautiful scenery, very clean and had everything we could possibly think of. It’s right in the centre of town so easy enough to walk to and plenty of places to grab a bite or drink. Highly recommend!

Towan beach is a quiet sheltered beach with plenty of surfers about. Being in the cove it protects from some of the wind and plenty of little caves to explore at low tide. Easy access from the town and plenty of places for food or...More
