Praa Sands - The perfect beach....

Praa sands itself is all about the beach - and what a beach! A gorgeous mile long stretch of sand, with rockpools at each end, surfing, body boarding, a great beach bar, various cafes and a great surf shop where you can hire wet suits; boards and book lessons - something for everyone! There is plenty of parking at one end of the beach where all the facilities are; but if you prefer things a little quieter then a short stroll down the beach - or through the sand dunes will take you down towards 'Hendra' which is virtually empty even in the height of the season.

The 'Sandbar' at Praa sands is much more than just a beach bar; it is open all year round serving drinks; teas & coffee and food; it’s a lively place which attracts a real mix of people and is equally child and dog friendly.

Praa sands is perfectly located for exploring the whole of South West Cornwall, equi-distant between the rugged coast around Lands End with the beautiful beaches at Sennen and Porthcurno and the tranquil sailing estuaries of the Lizard Peninsular. Falmouth, St Ives and Truro are within half an hours drive.

There is so much to see and do around the Praa sands area; one week is definitely not enough!

Beautiful location, fantastic house and a great host

5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in Rainbows End with our two daughters - aged four and two - and my parents. 3 generations under one roof. The house was perfect for us - big, bright and spacious. It is one of the best equipped holiday rentals we have stayed in. Geraldine has gone to a lot of effort to ensure there is activities for all weather. The location in Praa Sands is great. The beach is beautiful, there are plenty of nice walking tracks to explore with amazing scenery in all directions. There is a nice little pub right on the beach just 5 minute walk away. Very easy with two little ones in tow. Praa Sands is a really well located base for exploring Cornwall. Despite being mid-term holidays we were able to fairly easily drive from Lands End to St Ives and out to Lizard without many traffic problems. Geraldine is a very responsive host and really helpful whenever we had questions or issues. We hope to be back in Praa Sands in the not too distant future.
