The high tide gave the arc of Towan beach the feel of Gugh in the Scilly Isles, across the bar from St Agnes, with its sweep round and natural feel. There’s no development here; it’s so pure.

The beauty of the Roseland Peninsula in the morning.
The crescent shaped Towan beach, on the Roseland Peninsula, was wrapped in a mild mist for this re-visit. It felt like entering a secret world of sounds and smells, heightened by the damp air and enclosing mist. Being on the beach seems to lead people’s eyes to the horizon but, when misty, the lack of perspective and distance draws your attention to the pebbles on the sand, the minutiae in the pools, the subtle sounds of the sea washing the rocks and the morning smell of a rising tide.

This is a natural beach, without development and watched over by the National Trust. A crescent-shaped, south east-facing beach, it’s spectacular in the morning, with a viewing arc from the Nare Head to the north, round towards St Anthony Head in the south. The flat surface of the beach catches seaweed and vegetation in its rockpools at low tide, a panoply of subtle greens, blacks, blues, yellows and browns.

The peace and quiet of Towan beach in the morning.
Towan beach is an attractive, crescent-shaped beach, facing south east towards the bottom of the Roseland Peninsula. Looked after by the National Trust, it has plenty of parking, toilets and a gentle walk down to the beach. The beach was deserted when I visited, then I had a chat with Emma, from the National Trust.
