The Strangles Beach & Trail: A Hidden & Quiet Beach in Cornwall

Maybe it’s the physically taxing and winding trail which keeps The Strangles beach relatively quiet compared to other beaches in Cornwall.

At least the trail is a sight for sore eyes – just look at those colours!

It’s even more dramatic than the trail leading to Durdle Door beach. But hey, you can lie on the beach for five hours anyway once you reach the bottom.

A word of warning to reach the Strangles beach. A large part of the staircase is missing. There’s a rope which allows you to abseil down the rocks. But be careful, I saw a man fall onto his back trying to get down!

If you thought the trail was tiring, wait till you have to walk up it… So try to reduce any unnecessary weight when packing your bags!

The weather changed by the time we left. Blue skies and sunshine were replaced with overcast gloomy clouds. It made the scenery look like we were in the Highlands or the Irish coast. It gave the scenery a dramatic look for another reason.

The trail resembled Jurassic Park at points.
