Black Cliff Beach, Hayle, Cornwall
Feature picture © Ian Barnes (

Black Cliff beach, sandy beach stretching between Hayle Towans and Mexico Towans. Sheltered by cliffs and backed by dunes.

You often get some large areas of shallow water near the cliffs when the tide is out that provide great safe play for small children.

The beach gets its name from the dark cliffs that line the back of the beach.



Small cafe and toilets at the top of steps down to the beach.

Hayle Towans beach has a slope access to the beach and can be used to get onto this beach.

Everyone talks about St. Ives but this is the place to visit. Has everything you want for a day on the beach although the small cafe is a bit pricy.

Good bodyboarding, plenty of room for rounders, nice cafe. The speed of tide coming in did catch us out a little as we walked along.
