Stayed for 2 nights over bank holiday weekend. We had no problem with mobile signal as per last review. Staff really friendly & helpful. Disappointed to see a motorhomer emptying black waste in public loo despite clear signs asking thst we don't as no mains drainage ☹️. Great stopover, beautiful views & fab breakfast in beach cafe.

I dropped in here this week but didn't stay as there is no mobile signal. I know some people with be happy with that, but I need a signal for work purposes. The car park was big and clean with direct access to the beach and hot food etc.

Very frienly and helpful staff on site. Stunning views as directly over looking the beach. Toilet facilites fairly close by (though we didn’t need them). Local pub on the beach about a 2 ninute walk from carpark offering a good choice of food as well as a take away menu. Highly recommend.

This is a private car park and a great place to overnight, overlooking the sea and beach from the upper car park. £8 for 24 hours. £5 for 12 hours. Attendant was really helpful and cheerful. No facilities although toilets in lower car park. Safe swimming area marked out and surf boarding etc. Cornwall Council look and learn how it is done.

Cheeky little night at Praa Sands private car park, overlooking the beach. If you want to let everyone know that you are not from these 'ere parts, pronounce it (sounds like) "bra." If ya'a canny lad pronounce it like "pray!"
Situated on just off the Helston to Penzance Road, access is via a "narrowish" access road, with plenty of passing spaces for even a numpty like me. The binmen got down there at 9 this morning.
Absolutely nothing there apart from the coast path and the beach, which is why I loved it !
Word of warning from a local-just be aware if walking on the beach on an incoming spring tide. Looks the sort of place you could get cut off with nowhere to go.
Parking was 8 quid, for 24hours, a fiver for 12 qhich I thought was good. The traffic wardens are enthusiastic, even on a wet Monday morning in March.
This place will be rammed in the school hols.
Checked out nearby Long rock car park near Maraziom. Super location, £1 for 24 hours. Chatted to one of the locals, tells me that the site was designed for overnighters, but overnighters are banned !! (Cornwall Council mentality)
His advice was "when the warden's sniffing round at 7 in the morning,
Don't be a scratching and a yawning !
