Lovely bays for exploring rock pools

Lovely bays for exploring rock pools, quiet and secluded. Can even supervise older children from outside the Devonport pub

We had a lovely day. It's quite magical, getting the ferry and seeing the quaint village. The beeches are great for rock pools, and the village is great for a short stroll

We came over to Cawsand by ferry from Plymouth for the day and landed on the beautiful rocky beach with fantastic rock pools and stunning views. I had found on the cornwall.gov.uk website a circular walk that starts from Cawsand and takes you round the Rame peninsula which has a rugged coastline and the old St Michael's chapel on the...

We drove down to Cawsand from our holiday let in St. Mellion on Bank Holiday Monday. We arrived about 10.30am and managed to get a parking spot on the road for free, just outside the larger of the two car parks. It's £5.50 to park all day if you can't avoid the car park, but it is free after 4.00pm.... More

Both these beautiful and quaint villages are a pleasure to visit but if you a want a meal between 2.30 and 6.30 you'll probably be disappointed as we couldn't find anywhere that was serving food. We paid to stay in both car parks for 2 hrs but didn't stay in either village for more than 15 mins.the high season is... More

Came here by ferry from Plymouth Barbican, £4 each way for an adult. 2 relatively safe pebble beaches with rock pools and activities on Cawsand beach. Pretty streets and interesting cottages line the narrow road between the two villages. Few places to eat and coastal paths in both directions
