Our Local Beaches
You are spoilt for choice for beaches in Falmouth so we've picked out our favourite local spots for you so you can spend more time in the sun and less time looking at a map...
We are lucky enough to have the pristine golden sands of Gyllyngvase beach just steps from us and there is plenty to do whatever the time of year – relax in the sun, build a sandcastle, go for a wild swim, paddle along the shore or go rockpooling and see what you can find.
Gyllyngvase is home to the fantastic Gylly Beach Café right on the beach as well as a little ice cream shop and watersports hire. If you fancy trying something new then head to WeSUP on the beach and have a go at stand up paddle boarding – a great way to get fit as well as exploring the coastline and seeing the wildlife.
Head a few minutes up the coast and you’ll come to the small but perfectly formed Castle beach and just ten minutes’ walk along the coast path in the other direction leads to Swanpool beach – home of the famous quirky ice cream! There is plenty to do here as well with a bouncy castle, kayak hire and little beach café. The lake behind the beach is where lots of families of ducks and swans live and is very popular with our little guests – don’t forget to take some bread to feed them! For lazy lunches or dinner with a view at Swanpool there is the lovely Hooked on the Rocks restaurant which specialises in tapas and local seafood.
