Perranuthnoe Beach

West Cornwall.
Perranuthnoe Beach is a wide sandy beach close to the village of Perranuthnoe. The beach is also known as Perran Sands. Note that there is little sand left at high tide. There are two smaller mainly pebble beaches to the east, but access is difficult. The far east beach is called Trevean Cove and there is some sand here.
Signs warn of rip currents, submerged objects in the water and risk of rock falls. Lifeguards in summer. See Beach Safety Guide.
There is a slipway to the beach at Perranuthnoe which is suitable for wheelchairs. The first pebble beach to the east is accessible from the coast path via a steep path. Trevean Cove is only accessible by climbing over rocks.
