Castle Beach Shore Dive

Home  /  Shore Dives  /  Current Page

Castle Beach is one of Falmouth’s hidden gems, set down below the main sea front road, it is a relatively small beach. The sand comes and goes, depending on the recent wave action. It is sheltered from most winds especially from the west or north.

Local features:

  • Public toilets
  • Cafe
  • On road parking only

The diving:

  • Any time, high water best but not essential
  • No current
  • Less than 9m
  • Reef
  • Wreck

Spread out in front of Castle Beach is a nice sprawling reef with lots of gullies with sandy patches in between. Near high tide it shelves off quite quickly and a maximum depth of around 9m can be achieved. Buried within the reef, almost due east from the entry point, is a German WWI U-Boat, the last type III mine layer, UC92.

Castle Beach is a very easy dive and suitable for all levels and abilities.
