Hayle Towans beach sits alongside Hayle estuary. Good sandy beach although we would recommend moving along the beach away from the estuary for safer swimming, check out the lifeguard swimming flags that normally sit in front of Black Cliff beach.
Whilst the north end of St Ives bay has good surfing beaches, Hayle Towans is the spot for kitesurfing and canoeing.
Towans means sand dunes.
Lifeguards in the summer, toilets, pub and cafe.
Hard path slope down to the beach from the RNLI hut makes it easier to access than the steps at Black Cliff beach.
Dogs not allowed between 8am and 7pm 1st May - 30th October. Be careful that the beaches have various permissions and the boundaries are not easy to locate. Check the signs.
