There’s nothing better than finishing work and heading straight to the beach, especially if there’s a barbecue involved! We feel very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the country, so we thought we would share a few of our favourite beach spots to add to your holiday agenda!
We do have one condition though: if you see any rubbish please do pick it up. We’ve teamed up with beach-cleaning app Tidal Revival to offer treats in exchange for your collected rubbish. Everyone’s a winner!
So without further ado, here’s some of our team’s favourite Cornish beaches:
Neighbouring the popular Constantine Bay, this wonderful beach is quite the find and perfect for evening barbecues. Kerry, who grew up just around the corner, recommends taking your bodyboard with you when you visit and adds that the hill down there isn’t too big either! If you’ve got children then don’t forget to check out the rockpools, they’re teeming with wildlife.
Down on the Lizard, this one’s a little bit of a trek but we can assure you it will be worth it. With clear water and white sands, this is the perfect spot for swimming or even snorkelling. We’ll let the picture below do the talking…
We’re back up to North Cornwall for Tracy’s favourite beach, Daymer Bay. Surrounded by dunes and sandhills, there’s always a spot out the wind for those who simply wish to sunbathe. With impressive rockpools and even ancient tree roots revealed in a storm, this one’s great for kids who love an adventure.
Watergate Bay, where do we even begin. The home of the 2018 English Surfing Championships, there’s no better place to hit the
waves. After hours of surfing you’ll be pretty peckish – head to the Living Space at Watergate Bay Hotel for some seriously scrumptious food. Our tip? Grab a glass of Pinot and a seat near the window, the sunsets here are absolutely magical.
As the name suggests, a trip to this National Trust beach does include a few steps, but once you’re down there you’ll forget about your tired legs. If you’re looking for an escape after a hectic day, grab your favourite book and a blanket and head to this tranquil beach. We guarantee you’ll feel much more relaxed after an hour here.
Praa Sands hidden neighbour, this beach offers glistening sand, the perfect rocks to jump from (not too high) and even a beach café offering homemade cakes, light lunches and of course ice cream! If you’re looking for an evening stroll then take the coast path round to Prussia Cove. It’s not a hard walk and with views that span all the way from the Lizard to Lamorna, it’s the perfect spot for a picnic.
Another National Trust gem, Lansallos is a little off the beaten track so to speak. It’s a secluded little bay which makes the perfect swimming spot, for both humans and dogs alike. Caitie tell us that there’s also a few hidden spots right around the coast towards Lantic Bay if you feel it getting a little crowded in the summer.
So there we have it, Buttermilk’s favourite beaches, we hope this makes your beach-day planning a little easier! Our last piece of advice? Don’t forget to pack your favourite Buttermilk treats! The resealable Sharing Pouches are ideal for a picnic or simply to delve into after a chilly-swim.
