Things to do in Cawsand - Plan your visit

Plan your visit with things to do around Cawsand, Kingsand & the Rame Peninsula

Explore South East Cornwall

The Rame Peninsula is encircled on one side by the calm waters of Plymouth Sound and on the other by the 3 miles of golden sand at Whitsand Bay.

Cawsand is perfectly located as a base for your visit, with regular ferries to Plymouth, buses to Mount Edgcumbe Country Park and Plymouth, and a network of public footpaths for walkers.


Kingsand and Cawsand have a number of bars and cafés for dining. If you fancy a trip further afield, the Cawsand passenger ferry will take you to the Barbican in Plymouth, or you can take the Cremyll passenger ferry to Royal William Yard for a dining experience in the old naval victualling yard.


Cawsand and Kingsand have their own beaches, whilst a short drive will take you to the 3 mile long Whitsand Bay.

Dogs on beaches

There are dog restrictions on beaches at Cawsand and Kingsand during the summer months (no dogs on some of the beaches between 10am and 6pm) whilst Whitsand Bay is dog friendly all year round.


The Rame Peninsula is on the South West Coast Path, so you can walk all the way from Cremyll to Tregantle and cover around 8 miles of the path.

Parks and Gardens

Mount Edgcumbe Country Park is on the peninsula with 865 acres of parkland and woodland to explore. The SWCP passes through the park so you can get a flavour of what it’s like.

The National Trust owned Antony House with its surrounding woodland estate is around 7 miles away.


If the beach isn’t for you, or the British weather isn’t great during your holiday, why not take the Cawsand ferry to the Barbican where you can visit the Sea Life Centre? Or take a trip to Mount Edgcumbe Country Park where you can visit the House, play frisbee golf and walk with alpacas amongst other things. 

Further afield, you can visit the Monkey Sanctuary at Looe, and for adrenalin junkies there’s the Adrenalin quarry.
