Castle Beach is a small, south-facing beach sitting below Pendennis Castle in Falmouth, Cornwall. Low tide exposes rock pools to explore. High tide reclaims most of the beach. Sandier areas of beach are accessible nearer neighbouring beach Gyllyngvase.
Pendennis Castle is a 16th century castle built by Henry VIII to defend the country against invasion. From its location on Pendennis Point splendid coastal views may be enjoyed taking in St Mawes and the Carrick Roads.
