About Kingsand Cornwall.
Kingsand and Cawsand are located five an half miles south of Saltash
The twin villages of Cawsand and Kingsand once operated one of the largest smuggling fleets in Cornwall. Barrels of brandy. silk and various contraband were landed and transported through the narrow streets. Today it is tourism and pleasure boating that keeps the villages alive.
There are only a handful of shops and pubs in the two villages.The Cross Keys at Cawsand is a charming 17 th Century inn with a lot of character and a warm friendly atmosphere. There is a good selection of cask ale on offer, as well as tasty hoe cooked meals The Shop in the Square at Cawsand is in an excellent location as during the fine weather beachgoers don’t have far to go for a wide selection of take away food
Perhaps the most recognisable feature of the villages is the Clock-tower along the seafront of Kingsand. It was erected to commemorate the coronation of King George V.
The ferry at Cawsand beach runs from 14th April until mid September if the weather is favourable. It links Kinsand and Cawsand to the Plymouth Barbican, only 5 minutes from the City Centre
Even in the height of the summer on occasions there are only a handful of people on the beach even when the sky is blue this is not something seen in other areas of Cornwall. Perhaps the title of the” Forgotten Corner of South East Cornwall” is an apt description of the Rame Peninsula.
