At low tide the sands extend up to Ligger Point, 2 miles (3 km) to the north. The sand dunes (Penhale Sands) adjacent to the northern part of the beach are used for orienteering championships. There is an army training camp here. The southern end of the beach is backed by dramatic cliffs, with natural arches and stacks, and tin-mining adits. This headland is called Droskyn Point, and on top of it is a youth hostel with spectacular views, situated beside the South West Coast Path.

Perranporth is a beautiful little place on the north coast of Cornwall. Perranporth lies in a small bay and has a beautiful beach. Only a short distance from Newquay there is plenty to see and do.

"Some day I'm gonna write The Story of my Life" So goes the song by Michael Holiday - well I'm going to write about Cornwall. It may not cover the whole of my life but it certainly has covered a major and the most happiest part of it. Cornwall was my very first experience of a holiday away from parents. It was decided upon as a second best choice to The Isle of Man, the hotel there being fully booked at the time.
