Play Areas at Riviere Towans
There are four play parks situated on the site. They are positioned so that all properties should be relatively close to at least one. This year the site management company have spent a good deal on upgrading the equipment to provide our younger guests with excellent facilities.
Direct access to The Beach
The beach stretches northeast for approximately three miles, from the estuary in Hayle to Gwithian and Godrevy. It is backed by huge dunes and grass areas where unusual flora and fauna are abundant.
All properties on the site are no more than a few minutes’ walk from the beach with many overlooking the sand and across the Bay. There are three access points; one by the Cove Café near, Black Cliff with steps onto the beach.; one via the Bluff Inn which is designed for the less abled with a concrete ramp down onto the beach and there is a sand ramp at the western end of the beach, leading to the beach and estuary.
At low tide there are usually pools left on the beach ideal for children. With such a huge beach, whatever the tide there is plenty of room for all.
The Costal Path runs right through us!
The Coastal Path skirts the northern and western edge. No need to take a car…. it is right on our doorstep. Walk Northeast through the dunes to Gwithian and Godrevy Lighthouse, made famous by Virginia Woolf in “To the Lighthouse” or south and west to the estuary and Hayle. Whichever way, you are assured of great views along the way.
There are various paths from Riviere Towans offering short cuts down to North Quay, Hayle approximately 20 minutes’ walk. Once in Hayle there are restaurants, pubs, shops, supermarkets, galleries, take-aways, bank as well as a Visitors Information Centre in the Library and The Hayle Heritage Centre in Foundry Square.
