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.

Praa Sands is commonly pronounced 'Pray' Sands.

We have really enjoyed our holiday at The Welloe and the property is great.

The Welloe is in a fantastic location with stunning views of the sea!

All in all we had a wonderful holiday but there could be a few improvements for comfort.

A great property to stay in great views great beach and some fantastic pubs near by serving great food and drinks

We had a fabulous week in Praa Sands, we were so lucky with the weather which made a huge difference. The Welloe is a great place to stay to do some exploring or just relax, it’s well equipped, has amazing views and is very well decorated and clean.

If you are visiting Carbis Bay or St Ives I would recommend parking at St Erth and getting the train, it’s very quick and only £12 for a family of 4 with parking for the whole day!

I would also recommend visiting Hangloose Zipwire, Kernow Aqua Park, Jubilee Pool and Nanjizal Beach.

There’s not much in the way of takeaways or restaurants but if you venture out, there’s plenty of choice in nearby towns. Although Praa Sands holiday park which is a 10 min walk, does some amazing food, I thoroughly recommend a Sunday roast, they also show Footie on tv if that’s your thing!

We had the most wonderful stay at The Welloe. Extremely well equipped with beautifully comfortable beds and the location was amazing! A short walk to the beach and we could see and hear the sea from the garden which was fabulous. The walk from Praa Sands to Prussia Cove is lovely and there are many great restaurants to try in the surrounding area. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property.
