Hayle Towans, Cornwall


  • Located in Hayle, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • The sand dunes that line St Ives Bay are split by the River Hayle and Estuary. To the west of the estuary are Porth Kidney Sands and Lelant Towans. To the east are Hayle Beach and Hayle Towans. The low tide blond sand of the beach curls around Hayle Towans to the mouth of Hayle Harbour. You'll see numerous quays from which ore was loaded onto boats for the journey to the coal-powered smelters of South Wales. It's fun to watch boats move in and out of the harbour
  • To visit Hayle Towans, walk in on the South West Coast Path. From Hayle, you cross the bridge to North Quay before following the path up onto the towans. From the Godrevy and Gwithian direction, you follow the coastal path along the dunes above the beach. Clearly, you can walk in on *low tide* sand as well as pictured in the 'Photo Gallery'
  • As you would expect, there are great views from Hayle Towans. Note that you can walk to the end of the spit of land in Hayle Harbour. St. Ives is to the north west
  • Just east of Hayle Towans are Riviere Towans
