Praa Sands

Kenneggy Sands is quite an adventurous Cornwall beach to visit.

There is a risk of being cut off at Kenneggy beach by the incoming tide as the beach completely disappears at high tide so make sure you know the tide times and are alert to the risks. Once there the beach is sandy and dog friendly (although obviously the ladder is not).
