Kingsand is a sandy beach in South East Cornwall with patches of rock and rock pools backed by a wall and pretty coloured cottages. It is now part of the Mount Edgcumbe Country Park as is its neighbouring beach Cawsand. Set about 16 miles from Looe there is a carpark in the village which also has shops, cafes and pubs as well as toilets (unsure of opening times). Kingsand hit the news in 2014 when the horrendous storms damaged the lovely clock which stood on the edge of the beach. Kingsand has lovely views over Plymouth Strand and in peak season a ferry runs from Cawsand beach to Plymouth. Kingsand is a dog friendly beach in Cornwall all year and does not have seasonal dog restrictions.
