This white sandy beach on the Lizard Peninsula is enhanced by red and green serpentine rocks. Rock stacks and caves are revealed at low tide, formed by sea erosion. The beach is popular for photography, swimming and surfing. Rare plants and invertebrates thrive along the cliff tops as a result of the unique geology in this area.
The National Trust who now owns the land has improved access; although there is still a steep 10-15 minute walk to descend to the beach. The South West Coast Path runs along the cliff tops and it is a 3 km (2 mi) walk from here to Lizard Point.
