Parking in Cawsand can be limited, especially during peak times. There is a car park in the village, but it's advisable to arrive early. Alternatively, consider parking in the nearby village of Kingsand and enjoy a scenic walk to Cawsand Beach.


From Plymouth, take the A374 towards Torpoint. Use the Torpoint Ferry to cross the River Tamar (a notable experience in itself). Once in Torpoint, continue on the A374, then follow signs for Millbrook and subsequently for Cawsand. The roads in Cawsand are narrow, so drive carefully as you approach the beach area.


Public toilets are located conveniently close to the beach area.
