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.

Perfect location just minutes from beautiful beach. Quiet and very comfortable with plenty of space for everyone. Lovely back garden.

Stayed at surfside as a family of 5 with 3 teenagers. Plenty of space, great design, very clean and everything in the house worked. The location was brilliant.

Surfside is a perfect family retreat in a great location. We would definitely recommend it and look forward to returning sometime.

Fantastic location and super property. Can’t fault it and will be back

Surf side is a lovely bright, beautifully clean and comfortable house in a great location It’s a few minutes walk to the gorgeous beach and a great base to explore Cornwall from.

This is a real gem of a property. The location is excellent, being only a few steps from the glorious beach. Surfside is of a very high standard and extremely well equipped. We will definitely be returning soon

We had the best week at Surfside in Praa. The location is perfect, the house was spotless and had everything we could possibly need. We will definitely be back!

Loved it, a great location, set on a great long beach, lovely coastal walks in either direction, with loads of places to visit within a short drive, managed a bike ride from Marizon to Mousehole. Property immaculately clean and so welcoming from our outdoor adventures, fantastic break, thank you

Great house and the lovely beach is so close. A spacious house, plenty of space for all the family and the loft room was a big hit. The outside shower was so handy after a day at the beach and it was hot too. Great for families with toys and books for the kids. We had a fantastic time at the house and have booked to return next summer.

We had an absolutely relaxing stay. Every room in the house was perfectly designed so there was no worry about everything. The service of Aspects holidays was excellent. Thank you very much. We come back again!

Our week long stay at Surfside was absolutely fantastic and the 4 kids loved the snug area.... just a short walk and you are on a beautiful beach. We were a family of 6 and had plenty of space and the property owners really have thought of everything you could need 5* rating

Surfside is an amazing little gem, beautifully furnished and decorated throughout and equipped with everything you could possibly need,so spacious and comfortable we hardly wanted to go out! (There is also a fabulous surprise that we weren’t expecting,but that delighted both us and our children!) I cannot recommended this accommodation highly enough. Surfside is positioned with a wonderful bay right on it’s doorstep. Cliff top walks that I’m sure are breathtaking ( a little misty when we chose to go!) There is lovely cafe and a bar right on the beach that come in handy when you don’t want to drive out. Local pubs a few minutes drive away serve good food and local ales.

Everything had been considered - lots of nice little touches - Cornish cream tea to welcome us, beautiful little cinema room, proximity to beach, really handy outside shower, comfy beds, etc., etc., etc,!!!
