Kenneggy Sand, Cornwall


  • Located in Prussia Cove, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • Kenneggy Sand is part of an exquisite, atmospheric section of coastline running between Cudden Point and Hoe Point along the southern coast of Cornwall. Located by Prussia Cove, this large sweep of sand backs onto high cliffs. Access is via the rocks and pools by Coule's Cove at the western end of the beach. When visiting, ensure you check the tide times. The water rises to cover the rocks that provide access and you can get cut off. This information was provided by a local fisherman. Note that he also pointed out old steps that once ran down the cliffs at the back of the beach. The lower section of the steps have been worn away. A rope has been attached to the middle section to provide access. Clearly, we wouldn't recommend using this route onto, or off, the beach
  • We walked in on the South West Coast Path from the car parking area at Prussia Cove. This is clearly visible on Google's satellite imagery. The path runs along the cliffs above Bessy's Cove before it doglegs at King's Cove back towards Coule's Cove. At Coule's Cove, a slipway leads down to a coarse sand and rock beach. You'll see Kenneggy Sand stretching out to the east. It's a super place with a fascinating smuggling history
  • The popular family beach Praa Sands is to the east. The National Trust's St Michael's Mount is in Mount's Bay to the north west
