Whitesand Bay, Sennen Cove & Gwenver, Aire Point
These are most probably the cleanest beaches in England. The rolling surf breakers and the turquoise sea draw in the crowds in summer and the car parks are packed with families, surfers and beach babes. The constant swell creates shifting peaks and strong rips. Bathing is safest at high tide. Gwenver guarantees a swell in most weather, has shifting peaks and strong rips working well at 3-6 feet. Dogs allowed. Lifeguards operate in both places.
