Fab beach, has got the best walk to a beach ever. Take the road opposite the cottage, not the main road. A lovely walk past some beautiful houses and through the dunes beats taking the car and dogs can go on the beach, hooray !!
Separated from the surfing Mecca of Fistral by Pentire Headland and the Gannel River, Crantock is a little less high profile than its neighbour, but still draws the crowds in summer. A lovely, big, wide flat expanse of sand backed by sand dunes, it's popular with families, and long-boarders when surf conditions are right. At low tide you can cross the Gannel River at the eastern end of the beach to the Fern Pit cafe where you can try some of the sweetest crab meat in the world. At high tide the Fern Pit ferry runs the short distance across the Gannel between Crantock and Pentire.
