Crantock Beach information and Guide

There are car parks at Crantock and West Pentire. The beach is backed by sand dunes. The beach is a large, sandy beach with extensive sand dunes, rock pools and caves. Crantock Beach is situated at the mouth of the River Gannel.

Surfing: a mile south of the town, this is a north-west facing beach sheltered by east and west Pentire Points. Worth a visit when other beaches are blown out, the waves are best at mid to high tide. Hazards: rips.

The video below is taken with a quadrocopter and has produced some quite stunning shots of the beach the surfers and the windsurfers as it passed overhead.
