Swanpool Beach – Falmouth Cornwall
What Swanpool beach lacks in size it more than makes up for with shelter, view and entertainment. A mix of sand and shingle with plenty of low and high rocks for kids big and small to practise their rock climbing. This beach is not patrolled by lifeguards however, along with Castle beach, it is one of the safest beaches for swimming.
This is also the home base for Elemental UK watersports center. With plenty of watersport activities and trained instructors available to coach you. The layout of the cove makes it the ideal location for novice rowers and windsurfers to build up their confidence while more experienced sea goers can explore further afield.
Except for very stormy days and the odd day over Christmas and New Year Swanpool Beach Cafe is always open. If it is cold you are treated to a cosy poncho and a hot water bottle so you can carry on imagining it is the middle of Summer. There is a really diverse and interesting menu plus this is the home of Falmouth’s, ‘Quirky’, ice cream.
Overlooking the beach is the fish and seafood restaurant, ‘Indaba’. Mixing fresh fish dishes with an expanse of sea views makes this a perfect restaurant to watch the evening draw in.
Across from the beach is ample parking, a small fee is applied during the Summer season, and a crazy golf course. Plus the unique and beautiful fresh and salt water mix Swanpool Lake.
