Hannafore Beach - Perhaps one of the best places to go rockpooling in Cornwall, with a vast amount of weed, rocks and rockpools to cover, never the same day twice. This place has everything, free car parking, toilets, a shop in the summer for coffee and all within a few yards of the beach, beautiful views across the bay from

Looe Island to Rame Head. Now the new stormwater pipe has been finished there is now a level cement track right down to low water. Free Car Parking.

Carlyon Bay Beach - East End towards Fisherman's Point for shells and general beachcombing. If going past the stream care must be taken else you may get cut off by the incoming tide. Currently - Free Car Parking

Spit Point near Par Docks - A good all-round rockpooling spot especially on very low tides. Best spot is in front of the dock wall. Free Car Parking

Marazion - East side of the causeway to St. Michael's Mount. An excellent place to go on really low spring tides with a wide variety of rockpool life to be found. Care must be taken around Eeelgrass beds when they are exposed by the tide, they are best walked around and left undisturbed.  Car Parking.

East Portholland - One of the best places around to see a wide variety of Sea Anemones; Anemones seen on one day in April include Plumose, Gem, Beadlet and Snakelock and Strawberry Anemones. Plenty of other things to find and some nice rockpools also. Off the beaten track but quite popular. Car Parking.

Porthcurnick Beach near Portscatho - A very good beach to search on very low spring times with a wide range of interesting things to be found. Look hard and you'll be amazed. Car Parking. Charges Apply.
