About Whitsand Bay

Whitsand Bay is a vast expanse of golden sand at low tide stretching the whole peninsula.

There are multiple access points along the coast, down a steep cliff. The well maintained paths are safe, but watch out for landslides and rough ground off the beaten track.

Whitsand Bay only works at low tide, with a huge cliff the walk is not for the feint hearted. But on the right tide and wind there are miles of waves to rip apart.

The huge cliff also restricts the ridable wind directions, which works best with a cross wind.

Arguably the best spot, and certainly the easiest to access is Tregantle Beach, but this is a permissive path which is shared with the MOD firing range, and is closed for a large portion of most months. Other good spots along the way include Freathy, Sharrow Point, Withnoe and Tregonhawke.
