Hayle beach extends three miles from Godrevy Lighthouse to the Hayle Estuary. It has its own café, pub, toilets, shop and is life-guarded during the main season. The Cornish coastal path can be found on the edge of the golden sands

This is just a lovely beach. The nature walk through dunes are great, giving stunning views. You can stop at the Bluff Inn for a coffee or a beer.

Love this beach easy access from road where there is ample space out of season. Dog friendly from 1st October to Easter, unless the council change it again. At low tide you can walk right along to Godrevy beach, remember to check the tide times.

There is a cafe just up the steps from the beach. Called the bluff with an amusement arcade and great food. Also an outdoor play area and a bar.
