The twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are set upon the shore Plymouth Sound, in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The village is well equipped with amenities and a vibrant community all year round but really comes to life in the warmer months as one of the premier tourist destinations on Cornwalls Forgotten Corner.
