The bay takes its name from the village of Cawsand at grid reference , to the north-east of the Rame Peninsula. Cawsand Bay is oriented north-south, opening eastward into Plymouth Sound about 3 miles (5 km) south-southwest of Plymouth, as the crow flies.
Cawsand Bay is about one mile (1.6 km) across and about a mile-and-a-half (2.4 km) wide across its mouth and is bounded by Penlee Point to the south.
A ballad called "Cawsand Bay" was included in Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch's The Oxford Book of Ballads (Clarendon Press, 1910).
