On the south side (Pentire) are some good rock pools. Here may be found shannies, cushion stars, the squat lobster Galathea (squamifera), rockling, the Father-Lasher, and many other shore creatures.On the north side (Towan Head) part of the sand hills have been excavated to create a car park with shops and cafe. The natural background to the beach are grassy cliffs and sand dunes. The sunsets, when the sea towards Pentire becomes a shimmering red, are worth travelling a long way to see.
