The holiday park is one of the oldest in the country, with the first chalets constructed in the early 1920s. Now a beautiful site with a vast range of unique, quirky and privately owned accommodation, including beach chalets, bungalows and lodges. Many have stunning sea views and all are within a few minutes walk of the beach.
On the doorstep
Walk the coastal path at low tide all the way along the beach from Hayle river mouth to the Cliff tops of Godrevy and the surf break at Gwithian where you’ll find great food and drinks from cocktails to coffees, ice creams and fresh seafood at the local cafes and restaurants.
For those seeking surf, beginners to experienced surfers and bodyboarders can enjoy doorstep breaks at Hayle Rivermouth 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.
Take the coastal train from Lelant to St. Ives, and visit The Tate & Barbara Hepworth museums. Visit Newlyn Harbour and Fish market for the best in Cornish Fish. Wander around the historical market town of Penzance, taking in the Harbour and Egyptian House or take a day trip to Lands End and coastal walk to Sennen Cove.
Find your way to Knill's Monument and Steeple Woodland Nature reserve, a 40 acre public open space which overlooks St Ives Bay before making your way down to Carbis Bay for fabulous food, drinks and its sheltered beach.
Cornwall has always been a favourite of artists, writers and film producers and its rugged coasts and beautiful coves have featured in numerous films and TV series most recently, the popular Poldark series. Whether it is a relaxing break or a more action packed holiday you are seeking, Toms Holidays at Riviere Towans is the ideal destination.

The chalet was immaculate. Decor was beautiful. The only thing we found a bit uncomfortable was the duvets but we are in a pandemic so plastic is understandable. The actual beds were very comfy, that is always my worry. Not a big chalet but well designed and not cluttered. Thank you

The only improvement I would suggest is to remove the peaks and troughs around the area between the chalets towards the tarmac roads F55 was quite uneven although we had a 4Ã—4 still a challenge .

The site is amazing as always. The Chalet is lovely and we would definitely book again. The only improvement would be to get rid of the ratten chairs, which look good but are impractical and not usable. They need replacing with another two seater sofa. There needs to be seating for four adults at least. I also missed a washing machine.

We stayed in f55 Begondulkare for a week 1st-8th July with our dog. What can I say, chalet was light and airy modern decor, lovely and clean with all the kitchen appliances you need. Stunning views of st ives bay. The bluff in overlooking the beach, great food at reasonable prices. Bus available to st ives. Short drive to perranporth (dog friendly all day) and newquay. Short walk to a lovely old pub the bucket of blood. We would definatly stay here again just foe location and views and it is dog friendly. Even if you didnt like dogs you would never know a fog had ever been in there. We absolutely loved it here and the weather was excellent which was a bonus. Would reccommend this chalet 100%
