When winds are from the East this spot on the south coast of Cornwall south of St Austell is one of the locations to which you should head. It works in a North East, East and South East and you will need to avoid kiting here two hours either side of high tide due to limited beach and a steep shelf with course pebbles.
As the tide drops back you can gain a flat sandy launch spot ideal for twin tips and foiling if there is not too much on shore swell. Unless you are staying at the large private campsite behind the beach you will need to park in the village at the north end of the beach and make your way through the sailing club to the beach on foot.
There is no sea wall here but there are plenty of caravans and a children’s play area behind the beach to be aware of. Take care in summer the beach will have many people enjoying this more sheltered spot.
