Cawsand Beach is a small, east-facing beach in Cawsand Bay, on the Rame Peninsula in the far south east of Cornwall. The beach, which is predominantly sand and shingle with some rock pools to explore at low tide, is set in a sheltered location, backed by woodland, overlooking Plymouth Sound.

Cawsand is a small fishing village, which, along with its neighbour Kingsand, was once synonymous with smuggling. Both villages are now part of Mount Edgcumbe Country Park. The Rame Peninsula is a designated Area of Outsanding Natural Beauty. In peak, summer seasons a ferry service connects Cawsand to Plymouth. Boats can be hired on the beach.

Holiday cottages in Cawsand, Kingsand and Millbrook offer self catering accommodation to Cornwall holiday makers. Further afield, self catering holiday accommodation is also available in Looe (17 miles from Cawsand by road), Liskeard (18 miles) and Callington (20 miles) holiday cottages.

A large car park is situated less than 200 yards from the beach. Access to the beach is easy. Facilities include toilets, shops and cafs. There is restricted access for dogs on the beach from Easter to October.
