Visit Cawsand Bay
Cawsand Bay is a sand and shingle beach, in a charming 17th Century fishing village looking out across the Plymouth Sound. The National Trust South West Coastal Path runs behind the beach, for those looking to walk the rugged Rame Head Peninsula.
The beach here is mainly shingle with patches of sand
If you want to get in the water this is a popular spot for kayaking and there is a slipway to launch small craft and dinghys. Head slightly south of Cawsand near Rowse Rocks and Conger Point for some good snorkelling.
If you plan to visit during the Mayday bank holiday you will see the traditional May Day festival and parade.
From here you can take the Cawsand Ferry, a 30 minute journey to and from the Barbican Landing Stage in Plymouth.
This beach is dog friendly between 1 October and 30 April with restrictions in the summer. From 1st July to 31st August (10am to 6pm) Dogs are banned at Cawsand Beach.
To get to the beach park at Cawsands Car Park and walk down Armada Road to the seafront.
