Beaches in Cornwall
Bossiney Beach

This beach is a picturesque surfing beach which links with Benoath Cove when the tide is out providing a long stretch of golden sand. Its golden sands are amazing and this beach is best visited at low tide to make full use of the large expanse of beach. The beaches are clean and ideal for surfers and families alike.

The Bossiney House Hotel is situated above Bossiney Beach and Benoath Cove on the stunning cliffs of Bossiney which can been seen from the beach. It has views over what is considered to be one of the most romantic stretches of an impressive Cornish coastline looking out to the Pacific Ocean. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty and much of the coastline is preserved by the National Trust.

The clifftop area around the Bossiney House Hotel has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest on account of the incredible slate rock formations which are believed to have been created as long as three hundred and fifty million years ago.
