Circular walks visiting Hayle Towans beach

The beach at Hayle Towans, Cornwall

At high tide, Hayle Towans is confined between the river and Black Cliff but is still accessible from the car park and from Riviere Towans. As the tide goes out, the beach joins with Gwithian Towans to form a huge beach stretching to Godrevy. There are strong currents around the river so avoid swimming close to this (there are often red flags as a reminder).
