Hayle is the perfect location for a UK beach holiday as it is famous for its three miles of golden sand. Hayle Towans beach is slightly more sheltered from the Atlantic waves and nearly two miles long there is plenty of room. Gwithian beach is well-liked with both locals and holiday makers and one of the most popular surfing beaches in the area. The stretch of sand ends at Godrevy Point where Godrevy lighthouse stands on an island 50 meters out to sea.
Hayle was the first Cornish town to be awarded ‘Walkers Are Welcome’ status, meaning trails and footpaths in the town are well maintained and well marked. You can also take the Hayle town trail where you can learn about the town’s heritage with an enjoyable walk, you can even pick up a traditional Cornish pasty on the way.
