Cornwall Beach Guide

Millendreath Beach

Description:
Millendreath Beach is a pleasant sandy beach with rock pools. There is a slipway, but the slipway is private and boats can only be launched with permission. At low tide a much larger sandy beach can be accessed to the east of the breakwater. The facilities have been improved at Millendreath recently and there is now a café and toilets by the sea front.
Safety:
East of the breakwater there is a risk of being stranded at high tide. See Beach Safety Guide.

There is a short slipway to Millendreath Beach from the road. From the car park there is a short level walk to the beach.
