Cawsand and Kingsand are two adjoining small fishing villages in the Rame Peninsula. The villages date mainly from the seventeenth century and lie sheltered by a wooded headland at the mouth of Plymouth Sound.
The beaches are both sand and shingle. The beaches are easy to access and are safe for swimming. Sailing, windsurfing, water-skiing and fishing are also available.
The dividing line between the two villages was at one time the boundary between the counties of Devon and Cornwall and there still exists a house called Devon Corn which displays the marker on the front of it. The narrow village streets are highly characterful with their colour washed old cottages. There are some good local pubs to eat and drink at, but you would be advised to book a table.
The Cawsand ferry runs during the summer months from the beach at Cawsand over to the Plymouth Barbican. It takes about half an hour and it is well worth doing as it gives you spectacular views of Plymouth Sound and the breakwater. If you look hard enough you can still see the metal cage at the end of the breakwater that can hold 15 shipwrecked sailors.
