Long Description:
NT sign at entry to footpath leading to Strangles Beach. Follow the footpath and markers to the beach.

"The Strangles beach is located on a stretch of the North Cornish coast known for its high cliffs. In fact nearby High Cliff is the highest cliff in Cornwall at over 700 feet (200 metres). This gives some idea of the setting of this long sand and shingle beach. The cliffs aren't so steep here but the walk down from the coast path is still quite demanding. The name of the beach refers to the treacherous nature of the coast here with strong currents and jagged rocks. Swimming is generally unsafe.

There are actually two beaches here which join up at low tide. The smaller beach to the north is known as Little Strand and is set on the other side of the large rock / sea stack in the middle of the bay. There is a large rock arch at this end of the beach and the rock formations around here are generally of interest.

The main beach is a long stretch of sand at low tide which, given the relatively long climb down to the beach, is never busy."

At the time of posting the wooden steps to the beach were washed away. There is still a rope climb down if you feel adventurous.
