Families have been coming to Gorran Haven for generations and it really hasn't changed very much!
We have such a lovely beach - in fact two beaches, one (Little Perhaver) tucked to the side of the main beach. The sand is fine and the sea is safe. Sea bathing is somewhat bearably, thrillingly warmish in August, in your costume only (or without costume on the far end of Vault beach..) or perfectly fine all year in your neoprene wetsuit.
There's a beach cafe (the Mermaid) and a really good villlage shop (Cakebreads) with bakery and post office, selling wine and groceries and with a bit of a tavern thing going on in their courtyard nextdoor with Cornish ale, pizza nights and local musicians.
Ray on the beach hires kayaks and paddling by the seashore or around the rocky coves nearby is bliss for all ages. Jumping off the end of the quay into the deep water below is great fun and there probably is not a person in the village who did not spend their summer doing it at some point. There is a stream down the middle of the beach which requires 20 small children with spades and scoops to dam it up, divert it and create pools.
Ice cream, cappuccino and grilled chicken sandwiches etc can be bought the Mermaid cafe. The Haven beach supply shop sells 2 metre long blow up sharks and flip flops amongst many other essentials. The Haven chip shop can also provide an evening meal of fish and chips on the sand or on the quay, perhaps with chilled white wine is another nice tradition.
The boutique Llawnroc hotel has a bar and restaurant. The local pub is the Barley Sheaf In Gorran, a mile up the road. It serves good food and has lots going on in the cheery brand beer garden. It has BBQ nights and live music sometimes -it is very good for families with its friendly atmosphere table top football and billiards.
Gorran Haven is halfway down the south side of Cornwall. Cliff walks and tiny, windy lanes lead you to quiet and secluded beaches within a mile either side of our village beach.
Mevagissey is 3 miles east along the coastal path (a beautiful walk for the ramblers) and has several pubs and restaurants plus lots of shops and a working harbour with great fish shop (caravan on quay) selling local fresh crab and scallops. Further afield are The Lost Gardens of Heligan (10 minutes drive) and The Eden Project (30 mins drive).
