Perranuthnoe Beach (Perran Sands)
Perranuthnoe beach is located around a mile to the east of Marazion in Cornwall, on the eastern edge of Mounts Bay. At low tide Perranuthnoe is a predominantly sandy beach with some shingle. At high tide the beach is almost entirely reclaimed by the sea. The beach is a popular one with surfers.
There are fine views of Cornwall’s jewel, St Michael’s Mount, from the cliffs above beach, which is around half a mile in length. This Perran Sands should not be confused with the beach of the same name at Perranporth.
Self catering in Cornwall is in ready supply and visitors will find a good selection of holiday cottages in Perranuthnoe, Marazion, Penzance (around 4miles to the west) and St Ives (around 12miles to the north.
Access to the beach is via steps from the car park, and a slipway. Facilities at the beach include a caf and toilets, and one of the oldest pubs in Cornwall is located in the town. There is restricted access for dogs on the beach from Easter to October.
