Holidays in Praa Sands

With one mile of white gold sand, which looks almost tropical in the sunshine, Praa Sands provides an idyllic setting for a Cornish holiday. The beach is ideal for family picnics, sandcastle building, beach games and paddling, and the waves are great for surfers and bodyboarders. Praa Sands beach is surrounded by stunning coastal walks, with breathtaking views of Penzance, Mount’s Bay and The Lizard Peninsula.

Great surf and surf hire facilities are on your doorstep along with the coast path and spectacular scenery. Read about surfing in Praa Sands on our blog: Ten of the best surf spots in Cornwall.

Praa Sands’ nine-hole golf course is only minutes away, or for those who prefer a bit of history, Pengersick Castle is a short walk away where there are plenty of stories about the wrecking and smuggling that took place in the bay until the 18th century. Right on the beach is Sandbar, a modern and bright restaurant/bar with magnificent views across the ocean.

Did you know...

Praa Sands is commonly pronounced 'Pray' Sands.

Lovely spacious, well equipped property in a fantastic location. We would definitely return to Rosemary.

The house is large, spacious, well equipped for adults as well as children & is a 5 - 10 minutes walk from the beach, in a good location to explore southern Cornwall

What a wonderful ‘Home from Home’ experience. We absolutely loved the decor and everything was spotlessly clean. A brilliant holiday accommodation. We had a fantastic week staying at Rosemary and will recommend to all our friends.

Yet another enjoyable stay at Rosemary.

Homely, comfortable and so relaxing.

Will be returning again.

Great place to stay, very homely and well equipped with a wonderful sea view ( and you can hear the sea at night too with the main bedroom window open!). Slept 6 of us very comfortably without feeling we were on top of one another. Would definitely visit again.

A return visit for a winter break. So homely, warm and comfortable. Will be returning again.
