Porth Kidney Sands is sometimes claimed by Lelant but is in fact a lesser known beach of Carbis Bay. Reached at low tide from Carbis Bay beach around Hawkes Point, Porth Kidney stretches as far as the Hayle Estuary and is backed by sand dunes and un spoilt by buildings. The coastal path from Carbis Bay past Porth Kidney House at Hawkes Point will reveal the old miners' steps which you can take down to Porth Kidney Sands at low tide, alternatively take the Headland Road coast path from Carbis Bay to get a higher perspective of these dramatic views.
