Praa Sands

Kenneggy Sands is quite an adventurous Cornwall beach to visit. There are two ways to access the beach - one is to walk along the beach from Praa Sands at low tide, the other to take the cliff top footpath and climb the chained ladder down to the beach. 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).
