Whitehouse Beach lies in the centre of the South Cornwall town of Fowey on the Esplanade and is sheltered by Whithouse Point and Quay.
This tiny beach is uncovered at low tide only and looks southeast across the water to Polruan. Whitehouse Beach is a favourite with families as it shelves gently and has a large sea water paddling pool right next to the beach.
The nearest car park is the main car park at Hanson Drive, about ten minutes away. Access is via a flight of steps, making it inaccessible for wheelchairs.
There are toilets located nearby, and a seasonal dog ban is in force with dogs banned from Easter Day to the 30th September inclusive. All other facilities are to be found in Fowey.
Keen ramblers may wish to try the circular 4 mile long 'Hall Walk', via Polruan then along the shores of Pont Pill to the tiny hamlet of Pont, before taking the Bodinnick Ferry back to Fowey.
For more information, please contact Fowey Tourist Information Centre on 01726 833616.
