Hallane Beach lies on the south coast of Cornwall to the west of Trenarren Black Head and to the north east of Pentewan, near St. Austell. The small south west facing beach consists of shingle and some sand backed with flat rocks and a wooded valley.
The beach is well worth the walk from Pentewan as it is a suntrap in high summer. Hallane is one of Cornwall's lesser known beaches and consequently it can be quite deserted, even in season.
Access to the beach is by steps and there are no facilities here. To the southwest of the beach lies a gully cut by a stream which tumbles onto the shore as a small waterfall.
There are good walks along the coast path here south west to Pentewan or east around Trenarren Black Head towards Porthpean, Duporth and Charlestown.
