  • Dogs are permitted on the beach All Year.

Facing south and sheltered by Nare Head rising to 300 feet over the bay, Carne Beach is situated on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula and is a favourite haunt for walkers and those seeking a more sedate pace of life.
At high tide there is a little beach but when the waters retreat some nice sand and shingle with rocks at either end are revealed.  Popular with families and sometimes surfers if the conditions are right, the beach is overlooked by the stylish Nare Hotel where you can enjoy a delicious cream tea or a cocktail at sundown.

Carne is owned and looked after by the National Trust and is able to care and conserve areas like this thanks to their members, volunteers and donors. Car park free to National Trust members.
