Description:Spit Beach is a pleasant beach which faces south into St Austell Bay. The beach is just below Par Docks, though fortunately the docks are out of sight. There is a disused pipeline covered in concrete and west of the pipeline is a nice area of sand. East of the pipeline the beach is mostly rocky with patches of sand along the Park Docks sea wall. There are no toilets or facilities

Safety:No details available. See Beach Safety Guide

Access: There is a 10-15 minute walk from the car park to the beach, which include steps to a footbridge, which is unsuitable for wheelchair access. Final access to the beach is via a short slope between the rocks.
