From Sandbank you can head out on foot or for a short drive to all the beautiful countryside and coast that Cornwall has to offer.

Between the Hayle Estuary to Godrevy you can stroll across three miles of golden beaches, three stretches of Towans (sand dunes) and then head onto the cliff walk all the way to Portreath (next cove). Specialist bird watching spots and nature reserves are dotted along this wonderful coastal hike.
