Water Quality
  • Praa Sands, a mile long south-west facing stretch of sand, dunes and rock outcrops at either end. Very much a family beach with good clean water and swimming.

    For surfers the beach has a better swell than its more sheltered neighbours, best in the winter, but this is well known and you may have heavy competition for the waves on a good day.

    Apart from the surfing this is an excellent no-frills family beach with excellent beach and rock pools.

    Facilities include car parks, cafe/restaurant, shops, slipway, toilets, campsite and caravan park. Lifeguards present in summer on west end of beach and all year round on weekends and school holidays.

    Praa Sands Beach has dog restrictions. No dogs between Easter and October.
