Pendower is a popular family beach on the Roseland peninsula. It joins up with neighbouring Carne at low tide to form a one and a half mile stretch of sand, with excellent views over Gerrans Bay. There is easy access from a car park where the two beaches join up. Pendower is rocky towards the western end.
