National Geographic names Carne Beach a global gem!
The secret's out! The National Geographic today published it's guide to the 'Top 10 Beaches to Visit Now' and Cornwall's very own Carne Beach has been named one not to miss.
Ranked second, behind El Nido in the Phillipines and ahead of both Panama City Beach in Florida and South Australia's Glenelg, Carne is described as 'one of the broadest and most beautiful'.
Set within Gerrans Bay on Cornwall’s oh-so-beautiful Roseland Peninsula, Carne lies side by side with Pendower beach. At low tide, these two shores join, adding up to over a mile of uninterrupted golden sand.
Carne is known for it's calm safer waters and much loved for swimming, snorkelling and rock-pooling. A pretty stream offers an extra safe place for children to enjoy the water.
Dogs on leads are welcome throughout the year making this a great spot for walkers to pause and unwind on their way along the South West Coastal Path.
Carne is owned by the National Trust and is also a designated Area of Special Scientific Interest.
A car park leads directly to the beach down a gentle slope.
