Whitsand Bay runs along the south-east coast of Cornwall from Rame Head in the east to Portwrinkle in the west. There are beautiful golden beaches at low tide but when the tide is high these are covered by the sea. Access to the beaches is limited to several narrow footpaths which wind their way down the sloping cliffs while car parking is also extremely limited. However, the coast road which runs along the top of the cliffs provides some of the finest sea views in Cornwall.

Whitsand Bay is on the south-east coast of Cornwall between Portwrinkle in the west and Rame Head, which can be seen in the far distance. Beyond that is Plymouth Sound. At low tide a wonderful sandy beach is revealed, with the rocks providing lots of little secluded areas. The road along the top of the cliffs has one of the finest coastal views in Cornwall. However, parking is limited, as is access to the beach, or this would probably be one of the most popular places in Cornwall.

The old fishing village of Portwrinkle is on the side of Whitsand Bay, a few miles from Rame Head. Down on the shoreline are the remains of an old harbour, now silted up, while the remains of 17th century pilchard cellars have been absorbed into modern housing. At low tide there is a beautiful golden beach and numerous rock pools.

Rame Head is situated in the far south-east of Cornwall and separates Plymouth Sound and Cawsand Bay from Whitsand Bay. On the top of Rame Head are the ruins of St Michael's Chapel, which was licensed for mass in 1397. It is on the site of a much earlier Celtic hermitage. As early as 1486 Plymouth was paying a watchman at Rame to maintain a beacon there to warn shipping and to bring news to Plymouth of important ships.
