The best thing about:

The panoramic sea and beach views from the private terrace.

The walk to the beach

Just follow the path and down the steps in front of the apartment.


Sandy Toes is part of The Beach, a contemporary development perched high on the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Porthtowan beach. Guests can enjoy the private footpath that leads directly onto the golden sand below.

Porthtowan sits at the foot of high cliffs on north Cornwall's rugged coast. The village has a lovely relaxed, off-the-beaten-path feel, with a very pretty sandy beach backed by cliffs. There's a handful of cafes, pubs and restaurants, plus surf hire and lessons and great walks to neighbouring beaches along the coast path to keep you busy.

The beautiful St Agnes is accessible by foot on the South West Coast Path or a short drive away. Here you will also find plenty of places to eat out and enjoy an evening tipple on the beach.

  • We had a lovey holiday, Sandy toes was in a perfect location, quiet with a great beach and access to walks and great waves for surfing.The property was clean, fresh and relaxing and a good base for exploring Cornwall. The access road to the property was quite tricky to begin with but we got used to it. The information about Kitchen angels and food 4your holiday proved to be really good and I would use them both again. Beach Retreats provide excellent service and even arranged for a left jacket to be posted to me
