A very nice area to visit get there early for a place in the free car park which is further along than the main £3 car park! The cafe on the beach looks good but we went to the cafe with a huge garden set back and it was very pleasant. A nice beach for families as well as nice and quiet for couples. In late September the tide comes in very early in the afternoon so beware! Lots of rock pools to mooch about in too which is fun for children.
When the tide is out this is a perfect spot for the family. The small Talland Bay café is located at the bottom of a very steep, single-lane laneway to the beach. There's a car park there that cost £3 for one day when I was there.
The café sells sandwiches, paninis, cornish cream teas, ice-creams and teas and coffees.
The beach has some amazing rock pools that can keep kids entertained for ages and when the tide is out, lovely sandy beach is exposed. When the tide is out there are also some large-ish pools of water left behind on the beach that were perfect for my 16 month old to paddle in (under supervision of course!). If the weather is good then you can easily spend a whole day here.
This is a great beach to go to we had a couple of fantastic days here. Great for all ages my daughters aged 16& 14 loved swimming and the Kayaking you can do there. (You can hire out the Kayak's for £8.00 per hr from the beach cafe).
My son is 4yrs old and he had so much fun playing in the water & climbing over the rocks to see what he could find in the Rock Pools.
All in all a great day out for the whole family
