Sandraline Chalet – Riviere Towans
Welcome to Sandraline Chalet

This beautiful traditional clapboard chalet is situated on the renowned Riviere Towans, nestled amongst miles of undulating sand dunes and a stone’s throw away from Hayle beach – 3 miles of spectacular golden sands, excellent for surfing, swimming and extremely family friendly. There are many lifeguarded sections and long stretches of the beach are dog friendly all year round. The beach is so long it never gets anywhere near crowded.

Hayle beach is opposite St. Ives and all of its attractions. Just 6 miles by road – you can now get there on the new boat service running form Hayle harbour. Highly recommended is Britain’s most popular train journey last year from St Erth to St. Ives. A short hop with spectacular scenery and no car parking hassles.

Owned by a dog lover, who loves spending time there with family, friends and as many dogs as we can fit in (and even the occasional cat!). They just love it. Hagrid, a dog, was so happy he didn’t stop chasing his tail for a week. He loves it here so much he never wants to go home. There is no charge for doggies..
