Welcome to Castara
About a 45-minute drive from Plymouth, Castara is a working fishing village on the north coast that's popular with tourists not wanting the inundated Crown Point scene. People love the wide, sandy beach, relaxed atmosphere and picturesque setting. There's also a nice sense of tourism coexisting with village life, with visitors queuing up to buy bread and cakes from the clay oven just back from the main beach (order early on a Wednesday morning), or helping the fishers to pull in the seine nets. Castara is also a good base for a variety of tours and activities.
