Falmouth’s Beaches

18th Feb 2016

Beach hopping along the coastal path to Falmouth's four beautiful beaches Maenporth, Swanpool, Gyllyngvase and Castle Beach.

As well as being a bustling maritime town, Falmouth is also home to 4 beautiful beaches. Located on the south side of the town, Falmouth’s beaches are all within walking distance of each other and connected via the coastal path, making it easy to ‘beach hop’ to your favourite. Starting at Maenporth, we travelled North along the coast path to nearby Swanpool beach, then on to Gyllyngvase Beach and last but not least Castle beach towards the tip of Falmouth Pendennis Point. Below is some photos from our journey showing you the beaches and the beautiful views along the way.
