Praa Sands, Cornwall
Praa Sands is a long, sandy beach situated between Porthleven and Penzance. Popular with families, it is busy most of the year, and is especially popular in stormy weather with surfers and body boarders. In summer this is a particularly popular place to spend the day and there is a great cafe, pub and fish and chip shop close to the water's edge. There is also a surfing outlet and on the outskirts of the village, a small shop and warehouse selling outdoor furniture and beach supplies, etc.
Situated on the coastal path, there are miles of countryside to explore and spend an hour or two.
