English: The Towans (towan means 'sand dune' in Cornish) refers to the three-mile (5 km) stretch of coastal dunes extending north east from the estuary of the River Hayle (at 50.19256°N 5.43111°W) to Gwithian Beach (at 50.22991°N 5.39145°W) with a midpoint near Upton (at 50.21053°N 5.40768°W). Although 'The Towans' refers to the whole stretch, individual areas of the dunes have their own identities - from southwest to northeast: Hayle Towans, Riviere Towans, Mexico Towans, Common Towans, Phillack Towans, Upton Towans and Gwithian Towans.
