British Beaches

Sand, sea, sun, surf and scones

This website will be moving soon! We have a new domain name, and a new design. The current site will close later this year, but in the meantime you can check out the new version at BritishBeaches.uk.

Tregantle Cliff Beach. Whitsand Bay Beach

Plymouth, Cornwall

Long stretch of sand with rocky outcrops. Ministry of Defence property with local army base. Tregantle Fort overlooks the beach, and access is occasionally prohibited when the firing range is in use (Red flags indicate No Entry). Popular with families looking for an unspoilt rural beach (not withstanding the gun fire!)

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (Whitsand Bay) and may not be accurate for this beach. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use.

Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
