Gwithian Towans Beach

Gwithian Towans Beach is backed by an appealing row of sand dunes and is a popular destination for surfers, with a great Atlantic swell providing exceptional all-year-round conditions.

The beach is always generously packed, with watersports enthusiasts and sunbathers alike flocking here, and you may even spot a seal or two, as well as colonies of seabirds such as guillemots and cormorants.
