Praa Sands

Praa Sands - Cornwall
© Rich Tea and licensed for reuse under this Licence

Praa Sands is a long, sandy beach with plenty of car parks and a couple of cafes. The beach is popular with both families and surfers as it picks up the southerly swells.

During the summer there is a lifeguard service at Praa Sands. The surf tends to be a lot smaller at this time of year too.

The amenities are clustered at the western end, while the eastern end has a wilder feel (and no parking).
