Crackington Haven  

   

   

Crackington Haven is a lovely sand and shingle cove dominated by majestic cliffs and offering a stretch of golden sand along with many rock pools when the tide is out. Suitable surfing for beginners through to experienced surfers, but take account of dangerous rocks both left and right, Crackington Haven is also recommended as a good swimming beach.
 
This fantastic bay is sheltered from the north by the cliffs of Pencannow and by the headland of Cambeak to the south. Originally a small port that imported coal and limestone and exported slate, this small haven is now a popular beach with locals and visitors alike. Not only a good beach for swimming and surfing, but also renowned for the breathtaking views to be had from the cliffs that climb sharply away from the haven.

 

Crackington Haven beach has lifeguards during the some of the summer months that patrol each and everyday, from morning till dusk, so you can feel very safe if you fancy a swim. Please be sure to observe the flags, and the beach safety code.
