Cawsand Bay - circular walks

Cawsand Bay

The beach at Cawsand Bay, Cornwall

Cawsand Bay faces east into Plymouth Sound, away from the prevailing winds and so is quite sheltered with little surf. This makes it a popular place to launch boats and kayaks. The surface of the beach is mostly coarse sand with a light scattering of shingle.
