Tavern

Tavern beach, Cornwall

Tavern Beach lies just below the the 16th century St. Mawes Castle, built about 1542 at the western end of the picturesque Roseland Peninsula, on the South coast of Cornwall.

A mixture of sand and shingle, this south facing beach, lies directly below the 30 room Hotel Tresanton owned by Olga Polizzi.

Due to its proximity to Falmouth and St. Mawes, Tavern beach is a popular family beach which also has great views across the bay. You can swim here, and windsurfers are not unknown in the right weather conditions.

Dogs are not permitted on the beach during high season. Just over the harbour wall lies the larger, southwest-facing Summers (also known as Freshwater) Beach.

Parking on the Quay is rather limited so aim to arrive early, or park closer to the Castle in the larger car parks
