Kenneggy Sands

Visit Kenneggy Sands

South facing Kenneggy Sands Beach in Penzance is a secluded arch of golden sand between Praa Sands and Prussia Cove. To the east side of the beach it becomes rocky, great for an afternoon rockpooling.

The beach lies within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and South West Coast Path runs directly behind.

Walkers can walk the coastal path overlooking the beach, there are no facilities and access to the beach is a rocky climb and descent by ladders.

Kenneggy Sands is dog friendly all year round, if you are visiting this beach make sure you check the tide times.
