Carne Beach is a south-facing, sand and shingle beach on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula in mid Cornwall. It lies in Gerrans Bay, around 9 miles from St Mawes, 13 miles from Truro and 9 miles from Mevagissey.
Carne and Pendower beaches in effect combine to form one long beach, the eastern (Carne) half of which is the sandier. At high tide most of the beach is reclaimed by the sea. The beach is a popular one with surfers.
Access to the beach is via the National Trust car park. The beach has disabled access, and facilities include public toilets and catering in hotels situated either end of the beach.
