Roseland has lots of beaches, those on the exposed coastline have lots of lovely golden sand. Those situated in more sheltered postions are often more pebbly (less sand in your sandwiches at picnic time). A collection of the best is listed below:
Only a 3 minute walk from Nearwater, a great beach for swimming and exploring rock pools at low tide
A huge sandy beach about 1 mile long. If you are feeling adventurous you can take the coastal path from here to Nare Head (about 2 miles and hilly but well worth it when you get there)
A wide sandy beach with rock pools and a slipway. There is a cafe behind the beach open during the summer season.
An attractive fishing village with a beach which is mainly rock but with sandy patches. The beach stretches all the way to Porthcurnick Beach to the North.
A large spacious sand/pebble beach with great rock pools at low tide. There is great Tea Van now permanently parked behind the beach (The Thirstea Company), they do great cakes and tea. This is now a firm favourite with our guests as it is at the midway point of a 4 mile circular walk around St Anthony Headland, (accessed by taking the Place Ferry from St Mawes harbour)
Our favourite beach, only accessible down a steep cliff path or by boat. Lots of sand and rock pools at low tide
We call this Lighthouse Beach due to its close proximity to St Anthony Lighthouse. Small sandy cove, popular with boats when the weather is settled. Disappears at high tide! Accessible from the coastal path
