Many have stunning sea views and all are within a few minutes walk of the beach.

For those seeking surf, beginners to experienced surfers and bodyboarders can enjoy doorstep breaks at Hayle River Mouth and Mexico Towans, both within walking distance of the park. Paddle boarding and kayaking on the Estuary, as well as kitesurfing and windsurfing are popular all year round.

Hayle is home to the RSPB Hayle Estuary Reserve, Paradise Park Wildlife Sanctuary, Hayle Lido, ice cream parlours, gift shops, great food (including Cornwall’s best Pasties from Philps), pubs and supermarkets.

We loved our stay. Sea views from the breakfast table and a short walk down to the beach. The chalet was roomy and decorated in a funky, beach style. So easy to get keys and check in - so clear and simple, much better than many others I've experienced! vital at the end of a long drive! Wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Fantastic break at Riviera Towens. We have just returned from a fortnight's holiday at Toms Holidays in F46 Holiday Haunt as usual we took every thing with us that we thought we would need but we shouldn't have worried, the Holiday Haunt was spacious clean and very well equipped and we would recommend it to anyone who needs a base for touring or sun worshipping, the beach is stunning and easy to get to, I walk with a stick and had no problem.

Holiday Haunt is a lovely chalet that is really well presented. We loved the layout of the second bedroom for the kids and we all slept well. I loved the open plan living space and high open ceiling which really added to the beachy feel. Great location for the beach and outdoor shower/cupboard a great bonus for washing off sand. Thanks for a lovely stay x

Great stay at the cabin. It had everything we needed for a week at the coast and we could walk to the beach which was the goal. WIFI and mobile signal were terrible, but we actually liked that as it meant that we logged off and enjoyed our family time. We visited Penance, St Ives, Lands End, Hells Mouth, Deadman's Cove and also ticked off 16 different beaches! We were down during a big storm so the water was pretty rough, but the kids boogie boarded everyday and at four of the beaches, and I surfed at Sennen. Good times had by all!

We had a great time at Holiday Haunts, a very comfy, clean and spacious place for the whole family, in a beautiful location. The amazing beach of Hayle is very close and easily reachable by foot. A local shop was very handy to have nearby too! We recommend it strongly.

Excellent chalet.

Beautiful, well designed, warm, comfortable chalet on a lovely site, which we would happily stay at again. There is a concrete sloped pathway to the beach by the Bluff Inn which is the most accessible entry point to the 3 mile beach we have found (we have visited Hayle many times) and a useful little shop near the entrance, run by the next site.

Hayle Towans is an idyllic setting for a beach holiday, away from the noisey caravans and entertainment areas. If you like walking the beach is 3 miles long which takes you to Gwithian Towans beach which overlooks Godrevy Lighthouse, there are cafés in this area notably Sunset Surf and The Jam Pot. Lookout for dozens of seals across the headland in the seal colony. Then you can walk west towards St.Ives passing The Old Quay Inn overlooking the nature reserve and then take the coast train to St.Ives. We stayed in Holiday Haunt (F46) which sleeps 6 with views of the sunset over St.Ives. A modern chalet in a quiet location.
