Cornish beach named as one of the best in the world

March 04th, 2016

Cornwall has some of the best beaches in the UK, and it has been announced that one of Cornwall’s beaches is also one of the top ten in the world.

The National Geographic magazine named Carne Beach in Gerrans Bay as the second best in the world. Carne Beach is located on the south coast of the Roseland Peninsula between Nare Head and Porthscatho.

A number of other Cornwall attraction were also mentioned in the magazine, from St Ives and Land’s End to Poldark and Doc Martin.

The beach is friendly to dogs, perfect for swimming and other beach activities. If you are having a holiday with dogs whilst staying at one of The Valley’s cottages, Carne Beach is a great destination to visit and gives you the chance to see some of the best places in Cornwall.

Coming in second, Carne Beach was just behind Racuh a Payaman in the Philipines. The Cornwall beach beat out others from all over the world, in Australia, Cuba, Florida, Sri Lanka and Maine in the USA.

Malcolm Bell, chief executive of Visit Cornwall, said: “It’s nice to have a beach identified on the South Coast. In its class it’s definitely world class.”

He said visitors to Cornwall from around the UK and abroad were struck by the quality of Cornwall’s 300 beaches.
