There is a tiny church St Wynwallow, with a detached tower set into the solid rock of the headland, located to the north side of the beach hence the name Church Cove.

 

Gunwalloe is owned and looked after by the National Trust and is able to care and conserve areas like this thanks to their members, volunteers and donors. Car park free to National Trust members.

 

Please note: Dogs are welcome on this beach except between Easter Sunday and 30 September (07:00am - 07:00pm) when a seasonal dog ban is in place.

Poldark connection:

Gunnwalloe on The Lizard relived its smugglings past when Aidan Turner and a hoard of other cast members and extras descended to film night-time ship wrecking scenes. An attractive sandy cove overlooked by the tiny church of St Wynwallow.
