Walk along the beach and imagine you are in the time of Cornish smugglers. This particular bay was historically a popular landing spot of choice for smugglers from Kingsand and Cawsand, due to its shallow sandy beach and isolated location. Now a protected area of outstanding natural beauty. On fine days we are treated to the awesome sight of the paragliders, who launch themselves from the adjacent cliffs.

Keep an eye out to sea for regular visits from dolphins, shoals of mackerel or seals out on the rocks at Rame. The cliff thermals provide a perfect environment for all kinds of seabirds of different species throughout the seasons because of the untouched surroundings. A popular fishing location from the rocky outcrops or by boat. Hake, pollack and bass, as well as mackerel, are found in abundance in the bay. One of the reasons for its popularity is that Whitsand Bay remains totally noncommercial and untouched by man. The environment remains as it has been down the ages, timeless and natural. Accessible by cliff paths and being an area of outstanding natural beauty ensures this backwater of Cornwall will be there for those truly looking to escape to an authentic part of the county.
