Gyllyngvase Beach, Falmouth

One of the most popular beaches in Falmouth, a Blue Flag status beach, with its wide arc of golden sand and inviting sea. Great amenities, with award winning cafe, yet still only a 10 minute walk away from Falmouth town centre.


Gylly Beach Cafe is built over the beach and offers fantastic views from its sundrenched terrace and is open all year round. Prides itself on utilising wherever possible, local produce and best environmental practice. Fresh contemporary menu – expect lots of fish/shellfish, salads, tapas, accompanied by chilled out acoustic music sessions. Perfect place for a romantic meal or a family gathering by the beach.

Adjacent to Gylly Beach Cafe is a small building which sells take-away food, ice-cream and beach goodies throughout the summer months. Public toilets are located 20 yards away

There is RNLI Lifeguard cover between 15 May – 26 September at Gyllyngvase Beach

Travelling by car – in addition to on road parking, there is a large car park 100 yards away.  In the summer months the beach is raked every morning.

Gyllyngvase Beach is a 10 minute walk from the centre of town and is also linked via the South West Coastpath to Swanpool Beach and Nature Reserve
