Swanpool Beach, Falmouth, TR11 5BG
Swanpool is a very special place – a little oasis of calm in the midst of Falmouth town. The beach itself is set in a sheltered bay with access to lots of coves and gullies, plus fabulous rock pools at low tide. Set back from the beach you will find Swanpool Lake, which is an area of outstanding natural beauty; you can walk around the perimeter and enjoy the wide variety of wildlife and waterfowl, including resident swans that usually nest here in summer.
ElementalUK’s HQ is located right on the beach and we offer our clients changing rooms with lockers, hot showers and bathroom facilities. Swanpool Beach Café provides welcome refreshments, including its famous range of quirky ice creams. More information at http://www.swanpoolbeach.co.uk
Parking is available directly opposite Swanpool Beach, and from here there is easy level access to ElementalUK’s HQ. There is a small all-day parking charge during the summer months – but keep your ticket and you get a few cup of tea at the café! Alternatively, free on-street parking is available on the approach road to the beach. You can also walk to us easily from Falmouth Town station, and we are situated on the South West Coast Path.
Please note: Dogs are banned on Swanpool Beach from Easter Day to September 30th.
