Seaton Beach, East Cornwall

Seaton is a large and popular family beach with grey sand and pebbles close to the mouth of the Seaton River. It is owned by Cornwall Council.

Directions & Access
Six miles west of Looe. From the A38 at Trerulefoot, turn onto the A374 (signpost: Looe). After about a mile turn right onto the A387 (signpost: Looe, Seaton and Downderry). Follow the A387 to Hessenford and then turn left (signpost: Seaton and Downderry). Follow this road down the valley to Seaton.
There is level access from the road to the beach.
