St Mawes Beach
St Mawes, TR2 5
There are two beaches at St. Mawes, Tavern Beach and Freshwater Beach. Tavern beach lies just below the the 16th century St. Mawes Castle, built about 1542. The larger Freshwater beach lies to the east just in front of the car park. This relatively large south facing crescent of sand and rocks is quite popular in summer, largely due to its proximity to the ferry terminal for locals and tourists from Falmouth just across the water.
