Kingsand beach along with its near neighbour Cawsand are both shingle beaches situated in southeast Cornwall.
They are effectively one beach separated by the low headland of Pemberknowle Point. Kingsand can reached by walking along the coast path from the Rame peninsula or Cremyll; by road; or by our preferred option by ferry from Plymouth.
At Kingsand the beach is only uncovered as the tide recedes.
There is no lifeguard cover at Kingsand, however rescue equipment is located above the beach.
Toilets are situated nearby.
Dogs are permitted all year round at Kingsand.
The whole of the South East Cornwall area is overlooked by many tourists as they speed down to the better known resorts of Newquay and St. Ives but Kingsand and Cawsand still have plenty to offer... without the crowds!
