Circular walks visiting Colona Beach

The beach at Colona Beach, Cornwall

Colona Beach is an east-facing inlet between two reefs and is therefore sheltered from the prevailing winds. The beach is shingly at high tide and finer sand is revealed as the tide goes out. The rock platforms either side of the beach have rockpools at low tide and the reefs that extend underwater from these are covered in kelp. The kelp beds provide places to hide for fish such as wrasse.
