Holywell Bay

Holywell Bay, TR8

A truly stunning beach! The name of this beach comes from the fact that there are two Holy Wells in the village. There are exciting caves on the beach which can be explored but only with great care and on a falling tide, as they become completely filled at high tide! Holywell Bay is a west facing fairly level beach, with large dunes and a small stream making up the back of the beach. Good cliff walks are possible all around here. West of Holywell Bay lies Perranporth reached by walking up the relatively steep coastpath to Penhale and Ligger Points.
