Known as Cornwall’s forgotten south east corner, the Rame Peninsula is a beautiful landscape of tidal creeks, sandy beaches, lush farmland and country parks. Small villages hide at the heads of creeks, waiting to be discovered, whilst the stretch of coast fronting onto Whitsand Bay offers fantastic views and great walking along the South West Coast Path.

Whitsand Bay Beach offers three miles of stunning beach from Rame Head to Portwrinkle and is considered one of Cornwall’s hidden gems. Four golden sand beaches backed by sheer cliffs combine to create stunning scenery. The secluded beaches of Kingsand itself are south east facing, boasting views across the Plymouth Sound and the passing yachts and sailboats. Extensive rock pools are revealed during low tide, making this a perfect holiday spot for families.
