Boobys Bay Beach

Description:
Boobys Bay Beach is a wide sandy beach with many rock pools and popular with surfers. Park at Treyarnon Bay or Constantine Bay and walk the coast path to Boobys Bay. There is limited parking at Constantine Bay, so parking at Treyarnon Bay may be a better option. There is excellent walking from Boobys Bay to Dinas Head and Trevose Head.
Safety:
Signs warn of strong under currents, large breaking waves, not to swim at high tide and not to swim on right side (north) part of the beach. Also signs warn of submerged objects in the sand. Beach access is by climbing down over rocks and these can be slippery when wet. Risk of getting cut off at high tide. Lifeguards in summer at Boobys Bay Beach. See Beach Safety Guide.
Access:
Access to Boobys Bay Beach is via the coast path from Constantine Bay. Final access to the beach is by climbing down over rocks from the coast path or walking from Constantine Bay across the sand to Boobys Bay Beach at low tide.
Dogs:
Dogs allowed all year on Boobys Bay Beach.
