Situated at popular Carlyon Bay on the outskirts of St Austell.

Almost a mile long this beach is divided into three beaches: Crinnis,  Shorthorn and Polgavers.

The sand is quite course and mostly made up of china clay waste. Once quite popular with locals and visitors alike it is now undergoing a massive redevelopement and is not a recommended destination.
