Located between two cliffs the Poldhu Beach is relatively small in size, with soft sand and is usually quiet.

It is accessed via a narrow winding road which runs around the neighbouring cliffs and rural areas, then down to sea-level. There is a car park located behind the cove which charges between the hours of 09:00 and 17:00.

The beach has rocks around the edges for climbing, as well as a large sandy area, centrality located, for building sandcastles, sunbathing, relaxing, etc.

There is a lifeguard on duty, but check times when you arrive.

When we visited in August there was minimal litter visible when walking across the sand.

There is a café located on the beach front and surfing lessons available from this location too.

In summary, a lovely beach to visit, whilst holidaying on the Lizard Peninsula, that has lots to offer.
