Have been going to this beach since I was a baby and it is absolutely stunning! Great for families, couples,friends etc. Amazing sandy beach with gorgeous sea. Popular in the summer but have made many friendships on this beach which I still see now! Would highly recommend!

Off the beaten track, and down the narrowest lane but all worth the effort. I parked at the first small car park I came too and walk 5 minutes to the beach. There are 2 large beaches and the views are stunning!

Stayed at caravan park just up hill from beach and was happy to find it was dog friendly, was a nice walk and the climb up the hill manage to tire us all out. There's a cafe there as well, though didn't use it looked pretty reasonable priced, only thing I would say is park on the hill. There is... More

After travelling miles to find a dog friendly beach we hit on the east beach at Kennack sands. Following the costal path to the left of the beach we arrived 15 minutes later at the beach. A lovely clean beach with fantastic views and lush rolling waves. Definitely what living in Cornwall is all about. The beach was not long... More

This is a wonderful Cove and very beautiful. You can do a beautiful walk from this beach. It has two shacks selling good food and value for money. It is well worth a visit whatever time of the year

Kennack Sands is a beautiful beach with rocks of serpentine. One side of the beach has lovely coloured rocks and rock pools and the other is a sandy beach. There is a lot to keep your interest as the beach is so varied. A car park on the beach so not far to walk to get there.
