Gyllyngvase is the next beach west of Castle beach. It is a first-rate family beach with café and toilets.

There is good shallow diving or snorkelling to the right of the beach. Following the reef out will bring you to what remains of the "Ponus", an oil tanker that ran aground in 1916 (reference). All that is left now are some bottom plates which provide shelter for the local fish population.
