3 reasons we love Kingsand, Cornwall
Kingsand in Cornwall is a really special place. Here at Blue Monkey we just love our local area, and we wanted to tell you why! So here goes:
1: The Local Beaches
The small pebbly beaches of Kingsand and Cawsand are typical of an old fishing village. Kingsand Beach has rock pools for your children to explore with their shrimping nets and Cawsand beach has canoes and kayaks for the more adventures to hire during the summer. There are three pubs near the beaches:
- The Devenport on The Cleave,
- The Rising Sun on The Green; and
- The Halfway House Inn on Fore Street
- The Cross Keys Inn, The Square, Cawsand
…and three cafes within five minutes walk:
- the Old BoatStore cafe on the cleave
- The Old Bakery on Garrett street; and
- The Shop in the Square
Top Tip: You can supervise older children playing on Kingsand beach whilst you relax at The Devonport.
The villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are typically Cornish but not commercialised.
2: The Coastal Path
Turn right out of the front door of Blue Monkey and you can follow the coastal path along the Rame Peninsula all the way to Pen Leigh Point and beyond! Penn Leigh is Cornish for stone-slab headland and the point is a coastal headland southeast of the village of Rame in Southeast Cornwall at the entrance to Plymouth Sound. Rame Head is part of a small Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty known as the “Rame Head Heritage Coast” that also includes Cawsand Bay and the Mount Edgcumbe Country Park.
Top Tip: Pack yourself a picnic and enjoy the amazing views over lunch.
After a lovely walk from Kingsand through Mount Edgecombe, across the ferry at Cremyll and a walk into the city centre via the lovely Barbican, it is an absolute treat to catch this long serving ferry service and cross Plymouth sound back to the beach at Cawsand, step off the boat and be back at your accommodation, or nearest pub in 2 minutes.
Top Tip: The fare is very reasonable for the half hour trip, the view superb and if you’re lucky you may encounter dolphins. (NJC, Trip Advisor)
