A lot to do here
The thing about living in Falmouth is that you are never too far from the beach. Amongst a few that people love to flock, Gylly Beach is an all time favourite.

Castle Drive


Gyllyngvase Beach, better known as Gylly Beach, is a Blue Flag beach surrounded by golden sands and blue water on one side and an extended Castle Drive running behind it.

There are a plenty of things you could do at this beach apart from the regular beach activities like beach volleyball and building forts. A couple of benches on the edge are an ideal spot to sit down with a book without getting your feet dirty, that is, if you don't mind those pesky dogs that come sniffing in the grass. On the far end of the beach there are some natural rocks that you could climb over to find a secluded spot. If the tide is not too high then you could also find your way to some stairs that lead up to the drive.

Bring your binoculars or extended zoom cameras to take pictures of freighters and Royal Navy Ships that you could find on any odd day. Also, small boats with sails and surfers are a common sight. Put on your wetsuit and go in for a dive if you fancy, and with luck you might get to swim with the dolphins!

The crowd varies from young college students to couples on their honeymoon to vacationers and local residents. There is a Beach Cafe and a food truck (on Castle Drive) where you can pick up something to eat. No bonfires are allowed on the beach.
