Beaches of East Cornwall<br>
<p>A haven for coastal wildlife, there's good reason why over 5 million people flock to Cornwall every year. It's a delightful place to visit with much to do and see. During the summer months, a large section of these visitors head towards the coastal areas and visit the seaside <a href="http://wholesalebeads.blogspace.fr/69613...ozy-High-Heels/">blogspace</a>. Cornwall's size and shape mean that the beach is never that far to travel to. Expect to find good facilities including fine eateries, hotels and excellent coastal restaurants. Cornwall also boasts world-class surfing venues. Many other water sports can also be found like sand yachting, wind surfing and coasteering <a href="http://www.rising-metals.com">www.rising-metals.com</a>;. Look to the beaches of East Cornwall and find long stretches of golden sand, busy surfing communities, hidden rock pools to explore, a coastal golf course, and secluded suntraps to discover and claim as your own.</p> <p>The beaches of East Cornwall stretch from as far as St.Mawes and include the Roseland Peninsula, Mevagissey, Fowey, Polperro, Looe and on towards the spectacular Whitsand Bay. From here, the coast curves around the Rame Peninsula and on towards Cawsand and Kingsand near to Plymouth. The beaches start off fairly sandy and as you move further Eastwards tend to become more shingle. Notable sandy beaches can be found at Pendower, Porthluney Cove and at Pentewan <a href="http://www.tophanddryer.com">Commercial hand dryers</a>. Moving towards the Eastern section, Whitsand Bay are long and sandy, with notable beaches to visit including Long Sands or Tregantle beach.</p> <p>Looking at the stretch of Cornish coast from East Looe towards the Rame Peninsula the following beaches are well worth visiting and can be explored by foot by following the South West Coast Path. As a general rule, if you are looking to walk along these coastal stretches it's important to be fully aware of tide times as some areas are only accessible to walk at low-tide and there may be a danger of becoming stranded or cut-off by the sea otherwise.</p> <p>Plaidy Beach &amp; Millendreath BeachHeading in an Easterly directly from Looe, Plaidy beach can be found about half a mile away by following a pleasant wooded pathway. There are no parking facilities so most people walk to get to this stretch of coast. The sand is fairly coarse in character and a familiar grey colour - like most beaches in East Cornwall. As you continue eastwards you will enter Millendreath Beach about 1 mile East of Looe. The beach at Millendreath is a little sandier than Plaidy and sheltered between rocks. All the usual beach facilities can be found including some water sports. You will find parking close to this beach with a good access road.</p> <p>Seaton BeachSeaton beach is an attractive and fairly course sandy stretch of coast with good car parking and other beach facilities. It's a popular beach to visit in the summertime, with plans and discussions underway to further enhance the tourist facilities here <a href="http://www.nbyukon.com">Iron Curtain Track</a>. You can also gain easy access to some great coastal walks from this beach - east towards Portwrinkle and onto Whitsand Bay or West towards the Monkey Sanctuary.</p> <p>Downderry &amp; Portwrinkle BeachJust East of Seaton, Downderry Beach is next in line. At low tide, a narrow strip of beach about a mile long is revealed and leads from Seaton to the Eastern end of Downderry. You must be fully aware of tide times if attempting to walk this stretch of coast. You will find a steep coastal path taking you up over Battern Cliffs on towards Portwrinkle, which consists of 2 beaches. A small shingle beach by the harbour leading to the popular sandy beach called Finnygook. It's a popular part of the coast for good reason, and marks the beginning of the curve of 5 miles of sweeping sandy coast known as Whitsand Bay. There's a spectacular coastal golf course located here, and you can get good food and welcome refreshment at the Whitsand Bay hotel - located by the side of the beach. It's a friendly family run place and worth a visit. Keep walking Eastwards to discover Tregantle beach.</p> <p>Tregantle &amp; Freathy Beach - Whitsand BayTregantle or Long Sands Beach is just over 9 miles East of Looe. Expect 4 glorious miles of south-facing connected sandy beaches leading almost directly to Rame Head. Freathy Beach is next and can be found just below the chalet rich village of Freathy mid-way along the curve of Whitsand Bay. If you are driving, you can park your car at Sharrow Point. It's always popular with locals and those in the know. As this stretch of coast is south facing, it can be quite a sheltered suntrap in summer.</p> <p>Tregonhawke Beach - Whitsand BayThis beach runs East from the Rame View Cafe near Freathy to the West of Rame Head near Polhawn Cove. Do not swim here as there are hidden rip tide currents off-shore.</p> <p>Cawsand and KingsandAround Rame Head and you will find 2 sheltered shingle beaches of Cawsand and Kingsand. Both have usual beach facilities, with much to explore in the rock pools and inlets. Both are also popular destinations for families and there's much to see and do. Expect to find pubs and shops in both villages plus access to more good coastal path walks. The Mount Edgcumbe Estate and Country Park is close by and also worth visiting <a href="http://www.ivygenerator.de/clearboxesfac...esmaid-dresses/">ivygenerator</a>.</p>&nbsp; Order by www.gzpollyshoes.com/Girl-summer-sandal_p362.html
