Hi, does anyone know of any beaches that you can drive your van onto? ideally safely and legally! Be even better if if allowed to spend the night there. Thanks.

You can drive onto Porth, near Newquay - there is a car park on the beach! It is free over the winter, but they will start charging soon. as for staying overnight, the attendant goes home 6ish, and watch the tides! (have to be a spring high tide to get there though)

porths nice but the car park owner returns in the evening and kicks everyone out and locks up. port isaac i think you can park on the beach over night tide permiting as its not gated. its not exactly secluded though with the town looking over it.

You can drive on Weston beach, but I wouldn't reccomend it, or park there! Not for long anyway.

Weston has the 2nd fastest tide in the world apparently and it's caught out plenty of motorists unaware or who simply got stuck in the sand.
I've seen many a vehicle at best needing the local specialist 4X4 winch lorry services. At bad with the owner standing on the Promenade, hands on head watching their pride and joy get taken away by the waves. At worst joined by a well meaning 4X4 owner that thought they could help and got stuck too.

Oh, how we laugh here every time it happens! LOL:

Don't do it. Sounds nice and romantic but T4s are in loose material and the tin worm will jump out of the sand and start laying eggs in your wheel arches I:

pfft its allright on occasion just make sure you wash the van when you get home it'll be alright the grit on the roads when it snows probably does just as much damage.
